When Zach Wilson was selected second overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, the broadcast transitioned to the normal green room scene. Zach Wilson was all grins for the camera at the moment, surrounded by friends and family. The New York Jets determined that the BYU product would be the foundation of their franchise. However, another Wilson family hero was born on draft night. His mother, Lisa Wilson, sparked outrage on social media.
Fans were surprised that she had a 21-year-old kid, and some even named her the draft MVP. Her Instagram, where she documented the buildup to draft night, had fewer than 10,000 followers at the time. Today, the amount exceeds 100,000. However, she is once again the focus of attention. This time, owing to allegations filed against her son by Lisa’s previous lover Abbey Gile, with whom she is claimed to have had a close connection.
Abbey Gile shared a photo of herself with her new boyfriend, Washington Commanders WR Dax Milne, on Instagram. Wilson used to be teammates with Milne at BYU. Giles was dubbed a “homie hopper” in the comments for starting a connection with Milne. In response, she delivered the following shocking remark:
“He was sleeping with his mom’s best friend… that’s the real homie hopper.”
The news has thrust Lisa Wilson back into the limelight, and social media has inevitably erupted. Her kid will probably have to explain himself, but not as much as her closest friend.
Zach Wilson’s Family
Zach Wilson’s parents, Lisa and Mike Wilson, celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in March. She used Instagram to send a personal message to her long-term spouse.
“THANK YOU. I’m aware that I tell a lot of Mike anecdotes. He drives me insane! But I’m also OBSESSED with him. He is also madly in love with me. He gives me a sense of security. He pushes me to be better, even when I don’t agree with him. He trusted me and allowed me construct our houses. We have raised six wonderful children together. I’m so thankful for this enormous lug, and I wouldn’t exchange him for anything.”
The couple has six children together, four males and two girls. The family is a Mormon family. Mike is of Hawaiian origin, which is why Zach Wilson’s middle name is Kapono. They are really close, and they were all seen vacationing together in Mexico only two weeks ago. The recent news may be humiliating for the Wilson family, but their closeness looks to be so strong that they will overcome this. Her closest friend, on the other hand, may be a very other story, and their relationship may be over for good.
