It’s official, wedding bells will be ringing this summer for star Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his fiancee Rebecca Liddicoat. RGIII’s mom conveyed the news to a Washington D.C. news station recently, according to The Washington Post.
But who is soon-to-be Mrs. Griffin? Who is the lady that’s been living in the shadow of one of America’s favorite superstars?
Liddicoat originally hails from Colorado. She attended Baylor where she met RGIII. The two became engaged while Griffin was still tearing up college defenses in 2010, a year before he broke onto the scene as a Heisman Trophy winner.
RGIII proposed to Liddicoat with a self-written love song in candlelight (better step your game up, fellas) the same night he ran roughshod on Kansas State, scoring four touchdowns.
So there you have it, Liddicoat and RGIII’s romantic love story.
