American football quarterback Joseph Lee Burrow (born December 10, 1996) currently plays for the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL (NFL). Burrow played college football for Ohio State before transferring to LSU, where he would win the Heisman Trophy and the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship. The Bengals picked him as the first overall pick in the NFL draft of 2020.
Joseph Lee Burrow, the son of Robin and Jim Burrow was born on December 10, 1996, in Ames, Iowa. Jim had a 40-year-long career in football as a player and coach. Burrow’s father was a member of the coaching staff at Iowa State University. Thus the family moved to Ames when Burrow was a baby. In 2019, Sports Illustrated reported that “the Burrow athletic bloodline extends back nearly a century.” His maternal grandmother scored 82 points in one game in the 1940s, a Mississippi state high school record. His grandfather was a basketball star at Mississippi State, his uncle played for Ole Miss, and both of his older brothers played at Nebraska.
As his father was an assistant coach for the University of Nebraska football team in Lincoln, he took him to the 2002 Rose Bowl when he was five. Afterward, he joined a local youth football team. When he first started playing football, Burrow was the quarterback even though his father, uncle, and siblings played defense. When his father got a job as the defensive coordinator at North Dakota State University in Fargo in 2003, the family uprooted and moved there. Future Central Michigan head coach Dan Eons remarked Jim about Joe, then seven years old, when Jim was in his office. Before Jim accepted the defensive coordinator post at Ohio University in Athens, the Burrows made their home in Fargo for two years.
Burrow went to high school from 2011 to 2014 at Athens High School in The Plains, Ohio, where he led his team to three consecutive playoff appearances and the school’s first seven playoff victory. As a passer, he threw for 11,416 yards and 157 touchdowns, while as a rusher, he gained 2,067 yards and scored 27 times.
As a senior in 2014, he was honored with the Mr. Football trophy and the Gatorade Player of the Year award. The Bulldogs’ season ended with 15 wins and one tie. He also excelled on the basketball court, earning first-team all-state honors as a point guard his senior year. According to the 247Sports Composite, Burrow was the sixth-best dual-threat quarterback in the 2015 class and a four-star football recruit. On May 27, 2014, he declared his intention to play football at Ohio State.
The Athens City School District school board unanimously passed a resolution in December 2019 to honor Burrow by renaming the football stadium.
