He is not just a man to envy because of his earnings, he takes what he does serious and devotes all he can give to it. Here’s a detailed look at all you need to know about the player’s background, wife and recent deals.

Stephon Gilmore – Bio, Family

Born on 19 September 1990, cornerback American football player Stephon Gilmore comes from a family of six. As the oldest child, he inherited the role of taking care of his five (four girls and a boy) younger ones. This was because both his mom Linda Gilmore and his dad Steve Gilmore were busy with work. The babysitting task helped in grooming him into becoming strict in terms of organisation and management, and contributed plenty in moulding him into a disciplined player. However, that greater part of his time which he dedicated to taking care of his siblings (Sabrina, Sierra, Scarlet, Savanna and Steven) robbed him of his actual dream which was to go the gym.

The dynamic player had to find a new hubby in football since he couldn’t go to the gym. Channeling his gym love to football, Stephon grew fond of the game. As his teenage age came, Stephon Gilmore enrolled in South Pointe High School in Rock Hill South Carolina. While in High School, he considered different sports activities; playing basketball, football and also running tracks. Despite engaging in many school activities, Stephon was excellent in nearly all of them.

As a sprinter, his best finish time was 11.41 seconds in 100 meters in the preparations for the Taco Bell Classic. He later came 5th in 200 meters finishing at 23.14 seconds and finished 9th in the 400 meters with a time of 54.94 seconds. He also ran relays.

Stephon immersed himself in the game of football, playing quarterback and defensive back. In one of his team’s big games, he helped them accomplish a perfect 15-0 record. As a senior, he also helped his team gain South Carolina High School League (SCHSL AAAA) Division title. For his performance, the State bestowed him with first-team all-state awards. The dynamic player was also named an All-American by EA Sports and Parade. In addition to that, he was affectionately nicknamed Mr Football for South Carolina.

Football Career

Gilmore proceeded to South Carolina High School where he continued with the streak of breaking new records. As a starter, he played at cornerback during spring just after he joined the school. His subsequent high performance got him playing in all 12 games for the Gamecocks. He was given Freshman all-American awards by College Football News and Phil Steele after playing in Southeastern conference in 2009. This was automatically his first season of athletic participation in the school.

He started playing professionally when Buffalo Bills signed him in May 2012 to a four-year rookie contract at $12.08 million. The deal also included a signing bonus of$7.22 million as well as a fifth-year option.

He was chosen to play in the first round by his club in 2012 NFL. Being the 10th overall pick in that year’s NFL draft, Stephon became the highest selected Gamecocks cornerback player after Dunta Robinson in 2004. Throughout his stay in Buffalo Bills, Stephon made a name for himself, performing highly consistently.

In 2016, he finished with a career-high five interceptions. This accomplishment led to his first professional Bowl roster selection. For holding onto his matchless performance, the cornerback player became one of the highest-paid athletics in 2017, gaining a 65 million deal with New England Patriots. The deal also includes an $18 million bonus and $40 million guaranteed. The deal was considered massive and placed him in the headline as one of the highest-earning athletes.
