I was listening to Dan Patrick’s interview this morning with BYU QB and Heisman hopeful Taysom Hill when Dan got around to talking about Hill’s offseason marriage. Taysom gave some details on how the engagement went down and that’s about all I remember. Then it struck me…you guys really, really care about things like this and BYU is going to be around all season so it’s important to show you Hill’s wife, Emily.
This is how fast Taysom moved on Emily Nixon, a College Station, Texas native.
He told Scott Ferrall in September 2013 that “I’m still waiting for the girlfriend part to come to pass.” A photo of Nixon & Hill on an Idaho ranch popped up on her IG account on November 2. Hill wasted little time (a day) after his season was over via a loss to Washington in the Fight Hunger to propose to Nixon. That was December 29. They were married April 12.
The married guy, coming off a win over Virginia, was 7th in the latest Heisman Pundit poll.
