Philadelphia recently learned that Eagles star quarterback Jalen Hurts has apparently had a girlfriend this whole time. Her name is Bryonna “Bry” Burrows and they met in Alabama. She has an MBA and an absolutely private Instagram account (Bio: “love language: wine”).
The news that the town’s favorite idol, potential MVP and man who just wants to give the game everything he has in a romantic relationship has sent some Hurts fans into the abyss, and others trying to stay positive. about their own chances with him. Philly loves an underdog, after all.
“Just found out Jalen is hurting a girlfriend, I won’t be available for the next 24-48 hours as I’m grieving,” a Twitter post user wrote.
“Seeing Jalen Hurts’ girlfriend makes me happy but very sad at the same time,” another wrote.
Love for Hurts spans identities. When the Eagle Nation Account posted that “Female Eagles fans across America fell to their knees seeing this,” the men weighed in to say they too were devastated.
And he also makes a good impression on the parents.
“Jalen is such a well-behaved young man. The son all mums want,” a great-grandmother wrote in a Jalen Hurts Facebook group of 17,000. Many fans said that while they would rather be with Hurts themselves, they were at least happy to see Burrows is Black, due to the perception that black athletes and entertainers date non-blacks when they succeed.
Hurts has apparently been recurring with Burrows since 2016.
There was some confusion online about whether the woman in the photo was his agent, Nicole Lynn, the first black woman to represent an NFL quarterback at the Super Bowl. (It’s not, it’s his girlfriend.)
Hurts has an all-female management team, which sets it apart in a male-dominated industry.
Ultimately, Eagles fans who believe in what is fair and pure can only be happy that Jalen Hurts has found someone talented and successful to love. If he’s fine, we’re all fine.
