Friday FabOoolousness: Our Favorite Motion Picture Footballers

In continuation of Tuesday’s blog, Our Favorite Television Footballers, and with the upcoming release of my debut YA mystery novel, Football Sweetheart, I thought it would be fun to use today’s Friday FabOoolousness post to showcase a few of the cutest football players from our favorite motion pictures.

After researching my favorite football movies of all time, and I love football movies so there are a lot, I realized this list could go on and on with the likes of Adam Sandler (The Longest Yard and Waterboy), Mark Wahlberg (Invincible), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (The Game Plan), George Clooney (Leatherheads), Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire), and Keanu Reeves (The Replacements) to name a few.  But in keeping with the Football Sweetheart YA genre, I only listed the high school and college players… well, and one coach.  🙂

Tele-Tuesday: Our Favorite Television Footballers

With the upcoming release of my debut YA mystery novel, Football Sweetheart, I thought it would be fun to use today’s Tele-Tuesday post to showcase a few of the cutest football players on past and present television series.

I guess my love for football players dates back to the late ‘80s-early ‘90s when 1st & Ten aired on HBO.  I fell head-over-heals for the California Bulls’ quarterback, Tom Yinessa.

I couldn’t find a picture from his 1st & Ten years, but this still shows how cute Jason Beghe was!

And who didn’t love our favorite Bayside Tiger, A.C. Slater from Saved by the Bell?

He played a stud-muffin back in the day, but I have to say Mario Lopez is much cuter today.

But now, let’s look at TV’s hottest football players today.  Sadly, there aren’t many.  But courtesy of Friday Night Lights, The Vampire Diaries, and Necessary Roughness, we do have a few…

The Dillon, Texas Panthers
