Collins’ Girlfriend is a Neuroscience Major

Samantha completed her neuroscience degree from the University of Michigan in May 2020. The 26-year-old is an aspiring medical student. Roy’s Instagram bio says she is a “Chinese doctor in training.”

Sam was a Gymnast and an Assistant Coach

Like her boyfriend Collin, Roy too has athletic roots. She was a gymnast while studying at the University of Michigan. Furthermore, she was part of the Big Ten Championship teams in 2017 and 2018, competing for the Wolverines.

However, she retired from gymnastics before the 2018-2019 school year and joined the Michigan women’s gymnastics coaching staff as a student assistant coach. As a coach, she led the Wolverines to the 2019 Big Ten Championship and Big Ten regular season titles.

Sam co-founded Student-Athlete Sexual Health

Battling with her mental health struggles, Roy turned to advocating for mental health for other athletes. She co-founded Student-Athlete Sexual Health (S.A.S.H), a safe place for anyone affected by sexual abuse or sexual harassment.

Likewise, she was also the mental health representative for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Roy was One of the Victims of Larry Nassar

Sam was one of the survivors among dozens of women gymnasts sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar in 2015. The offender pleaded guilty in 2017 and has been serving a prison sentence.

Following the infamous case, the survivors, including Roy, sued the FBI for failing to stop the offender when they received the allegations initially in 2015. Regarding the issue, the former gymnast reportedly said that:

If FBI had simply done its job, Nassar would have been stopped before he ever had the chance to abuse hundreds of girls , including me.

Sam is Proud of her Footballer Boyfriend

The former athlete not only cheers her boyfriend on the football field but also makes sure to support him whenever necessary.

Collins’ girlfriend is often found appreciating him for his hard work and accomplishments. Likewise, on January 12, 2023, marking Nico’s two years in the NFL, Sam wrote on her Instagram:

I am in awe of what you have been able to accomplish so far on and off the field. From touchdowns to your willingness to give back to the community, it was pure magic to watch.

Sam is Good Friends with fellow NFL WAGS

Nico’s beautiful girlfriend shares a good relationship with his fellow players’ wives and girlfriends. Roy seems to be closer with Davis Mills’ wife-to-be, Tori Wisted. The WAG duo are found posting each other’s pictures and commenting on one another’s Instagram posts quite often.

Nico and His Partner Shares A Dog

Along with enjoying their relationship, Nico and Sam are raising a pet together and are proud dog parents. They love their doggo, who they have named Uno. They even celebrate Uno’s birthday every year in June.

The Pair Loves Traveling Together

Unlike Nico, Sam is very expressive about her love life and loves to flaunt her boyfriend on her public profile. The couple often go out on dates, vacations, parties, picnics, events and love each other’s company.

Likewise, Sam has also expressed in many of her posts that she loves to travel with Nico.

Is Sam, Collin’s Wife-to-Be?

The twosome seem to be in a great relationship. Given that they have already been together for more than 4 years, it is certain that their relationship is thriving. Moreover, they look like a good match as a husband and wife.

Sadly, the couple is nowhere close to discussing their plans, nor are there any reports talking about their marriage. So, we cannot say if Nico’s current girlfriend is his wife-to-be, but we sure hope, she is the one.
