His rise to stardom began after he emerged as the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. 

Before then, Burrow played college football with Ohio State and Louisiana State University. 

He led his college team to the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship and won the Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award for his impressive performance that year. 

He also won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2021 for his incredible performance after returning from a severe knee injury.

Holzmacher isn’t a football fan merely because she’s dating a quarterback. 

It turns out she’s been an avid lover of the game long before she met Burrow. 

A picture on her Instagram dating far back as 2015 shows her at Lambeau Field with the caption reading: “Go pack go.”4 

Another picture shows her and a friend dressed in the Buckeyes gear with the caption reading, “Almost that time of the year. ❤️🌰🏈”5 

These are more than enough proof she was interested in the sport long before meeting her significant other.

So, it’s no surprise she actively supports her boyfriend’s career by attending his games and promoting him on social media. 

During Joe Burrow’s super bowl run, she was there for him despite the results not turning out as they had hoped. 

In fact, her Instagram photos show her and her friends enjoying the experience despite the loss.

Sometime back in 2017, Olivia Holzmacher shared a photo of her dog, Beau, on Instagram for the first time, with the caption:7 

“Beau’s [/bō/ ] first day home! Eight-week-old mini Goldendoodle who is way too calm and sweet. He learned to sit 4 times in a row and only had one potty accident the entire day! Couldn’t ask for a better pup!!”

Ever since making that post, Holzmacher has graced her Instagram followers with several pictures of Beau.

Coincidentally, it so happens that her lover, Joe Burrow, also has an animal friend. 

In February 2022, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden announced it had named a newly hatched penguin chick “Cup O’ Joe Burrow” after the Cincinnati Bengal quarterback.8

As the Cincinnati Zoo captioned in a Facebook post:9

“The chick and the quarterback have more in common than just their obvious good looks. This chick has been a great leader since Dey (sic) 1. He’s always communicating his game plan to the entire team, and the plan is always eating and sleeping. Little blue penguins and QB Burrow are both good swimmers but can’t fly, and they know how to survive in extreme environments—Arrowhead Stadium and the rocky cliffs of New Zealand.”
