Before Joe Burrow was a Heisman Trophy winner or a star quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, he was a little boy growing up in southeastern Ohio with his parents, Jimmy and Robin Burrow, encouraging him to follow his passion for the sport.
Football talent runs in the Burrow family: Joe’s father, Jimmy, is a former NFL player himself as well as a retired coach, and his two brothers both played the sport in college.
Ahead of Joe’s first Super Bowl appearance with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2022, Robin said on Sunny This Morning of her son, “I don’t think there is a word that describes how full of joy and happiness that we are right now.”
While Joe and the Bengals had a chance to return to the Super Bowl in 2023, his team lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 23-20 during the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium on Jan. 30, 2023. “We’ll come back, have a great offseason, get better as team, get better individually, and get back next year ready to go,” Burrow said after the loss.
So who are the Bengals quarterback’s biggest fans? Here is everything to know about Joe Burrow’s parents, Jimmy and Robin Burrow. The Burrows have lived in Athens, Ohio since 2005 when Jimmy got a job as a defensive coordinator at Ohio University.
“Joe, Robin and I, we love Athens, we love Ohio, we love the Bengals and we love all the people,” Jimmy proclaimed in January 2023.
