Jacoby Brissett is a football quarterback for the Washington Commanders. He played college football at Florida followed by NC State. Brissett was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was raised by a single mother, Lisa Brown.

Even though Brissett is a renowned footballer now, he was confused between football and basketball during his youth days. His mom once said, “He knows that I’m a big football fan and I think that’s why he chose football.”

Talking about his love life, Brissett is reportedly dating Sloan Young. She is a North Carolina native who works as a real estate agent at Allen Tate Companies.

Brissett and Young met back in 2013 at North Carolina State University. The pair didn’t start dating right away. If the online sources are to be believed, the duo started going out in 2014.

Meanwhile, there is no clue if they are dating to the date. They have kept their relationship under the media limelight, so it’s tricky to tell about their current relationship status.
