Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been on the national football radar since he was a four-star signal caller for Texas' Channelview High School. He introduced himself to the college football world as the Alabama Crimson Tide's first true freshman starting quarterback in over 30 years and held the job until the second half of the 2017 National Championship Game, when Tua Tagovailoa usurped him. Hurts then took his talents to Norman, Oklahoma, to play for head coach Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners. He proved he was still one of the best quarterbacks in all the land by carving up Big 12 defenses enough to be named a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2019. But what about the man off the field? What about his personal life? His love life? Who is Jalen Hurts' girlfriend? We'll get to that.
Naturally, the dual-threat QB's next step was the NFL. His rebound senior year at Oklahoma was all the Philadelphia Eagles needed to see to draft him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He sat behind then-Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz until Wentz played poor enough to give Hurts a shot at commanding the offense full-time. He started the final four games of the season and proved himself as a passer and runner despite the Eagles going 1-3.
Now, Hurts is in MVP form and has the Birds looking like they can win a Super Bowl and they're set to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona, after taking down the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. While this is the first time Hurts has made it to the big game, we're sure it won't be the lastThat's a record-breaking brief of the Philly QB's football bio. Now we can discuss his personal life and his girlfriend Bryonna "Bry" Burrows.

Hurts keeps his private life on the down low. He doesn't post much other than football-related content on social media, so it's not easy to know who he's been dating, if anyone. However, when the 2016 SEC Offensive Player of the Year wasn't throwing touchdowns against Texas A&M and Clemson at Alabama, he was spending his time with his girlfriend Bryonna Burrows, former Vice President of Alabama's MBA Association and a member of Alabama's national award-winning MBA Case Team.
Bryonna Rivera Burrows was very plugged in at the University of Alabama, taking part in various student organizations and earning two bachelor's degrees in Spanish and political science. She went on to earn her master's degree in business administration immediately after graduation.
The couple's relationship status changed to "terminated" when Hurts transferred to Oklahoma to finish his college career. As for Bry Burrows, she reportedly works as a software financing leader for IBM, as well as the brand's AI partner, in the Dallas area. While Jalen Hurts was balling on the field in 2022 on his way to Super Bowl LVII, Hurts found his way back to Burrows. The two already have a strong relationship foundation, so it appears the sky's the limit.
The Beginning of Jalen Hurts' NFL Career
Making the jump from the University of Oklahoma to the NFL appeared to be a lot easier than most thought it would be for quarterback Jalen Hurts. After being passed up by teams like the Dallas Cowboys, New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons, Hurts decided he'd pull a Tom Brady and make every team in the National Football League who passed him up regret that decision.
After Carson Wentz was dealt to the Colts, Hurts took over and hasn't looked back. One of the best NFL players to take the field in 2022, Hurts had a sensational 2022 season in Philadelphia. One that might end in a Super Bowl parade.
