The New York Jets selected BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the second overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night, which should’ve been about him and what he could bring to the team. The conversation around Zach quickly switched from him to his mom, who became a trending topic on Twitter.
On Friday, Wilson was asked about his mother, Lisa, and her and the attention she is getting.
“Yeah, it’s not my favorite for sure. I like to keep her out of the spotlight. She’s an awesome lady and I love having her support,” he told WFAN Sports Radio.

Lisa is a self-described “fitness fanatic” and mother of six children. Eventually, Lisa couldn’t ignore all the hoopla surrounding her being a trending topic, so she responded on her Instagram story.
Zach Wilson has been linked to the Jets for some time and he wasted no time telling Jets fans what they can expect from him.
“I’m going to give it everything I have. There’s not another team I’d want to play for besides the Jets,” he told the NFL Network. “I’m going to give it everything I have and we’re gonna be a special team, baby. We’re going for the Super Bowl.”
Last season, he threw for 3,692 yards, 33 touchdown passes and just three interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
