Evan Mathis Celebrity Life
Early life and biography
Born on the 1st of November, 1981, in Birmingham, in the state of Alabama, USA, Evan Bradley Mathis is an American professional ex-footballer who played under the helm of the NFL for the Panthers of Carolina.
He also played for other national teams such as the Dolphins from Miami, the Eagles of Philadelphia, the Broncos from Denver, and the Bengals, the Cincinnati national team.
Having played as an offensive guard, he was selected to play in the 2005 draft of the NFL.
As a child, he was obsessed with collecting sports cards and took the hobby very seriously while being raised by his parents in Alabama. He got his first card at the age of six.
This was largely due to the fact that Mathis had relatives scattered across the state. In this way, he gained exposure to city and country life. He loved sports but was not a proficient athlete as a child.
He began to play baseball at the age of twelve and practiced at the game until he was relatively decent at it. His whole life in sports has been about gradual improvement just by his own hard work.
His uncle, Bob Baumhower, was an all-American football star at Alabama's university. He influenced Mathis to a degree. Baumhower played in the defensive tackle position.
Later, Baumhower went on to play national football for the Dolphins, a Miami-based national football team.
Now, Mathis plays at poker competitions, winning many (he is good at the game) and is married to Katelynn, and they have one daughter. Mathis enjoys family life with his wife, daughter, and two dogs.
They spend their vacations in Arizona, at Scottsdale, where they have extended family. Mathis started a training institute in 2010, at Scottsdale. His brother, Adam, manages the facility and is also a personal trainer at the institute.
Mathis went to high school - Homewood High - in Homewood in the state of Alabama. He played football there, but competed well in track and field events, and wrestling as well.
Bob Newton was his football coach there. He showed promise in wrestling (actually thinking of it as an alternate career option to football later on) and won wrestling championships in 2000 in the Alabama state heavyweight category.
His top throw at shot put was impressive at 15.24 meters. He started playing football late - only in his high school years.
Mathis attended Alabama's university and gained weight for a football career in college - he went from 240 lb to 276 lb. He joined the college in 2000 but had a redshirt season in his freshman year.
He played football for Alabama in 2001, an offensive lineman. He improved his game a great deal through subsequent seasons and started four seasons (and 47 straight games) for the Alabama college team.
In the first three years, he played in the position of tackle but moved to the position of the left guard in his senior year. The team had many successes due to his play.
In September of 2008, standing at a height of 6 ft 5 in, and having bulked up to 304 lb, Mathis was signed on by the national Miami team, the Dolphins.
He took the place of their right guard player who was put in a reserve position due to an injury. Nonetheless, he was released from the team in two months, in November.
He played seven games with them. From 2008 to 2010, he played for the Bengals, Cincinnati's team. Not a single sack was allowed by Mathis in the 2009 and 2010 seasons of play.
In 2011, Mathis had a contract of a year with the Eagles of Philadelphia. He was a starter at left guard for that season. In 2012, he signed a five-year contract with the same team at $25.5 million.
He was rated as "best guard of the NFL" in 2011, 2012, and 2013, by various authorities. This was in spite of not playing seven games as he had an injury.
In 2015, he played with the Denver team, the Broncos, and went to the Super Bowl with them. The team won in the tournament when it beat the Panthers of Carolina.
After playing for Arizona, he announced that he would retire in 2017. He made this declaration on Twitter.
