Joe Burrow has made waves following an outstanding NFL season that led the Bengals all the way to Super Bowl LVI. Now with celebrity status and not afraid to use it for good, he has used this platform to cultivate relationships such as with Olivia Holzmacher who appears to be his lucky charm.

At Ohio State University, Olivia studied data analytics. They began dating discreetly while in college but eventually made the relationship official – sharing photos together on Instagram as proof.

Holzmacher was also seen at the Super Bowl wearing Bengals gear and supporting her community of Athens, Ohio, where she has made an enormous difference. Holzmacher has also advocated for women’s rights issues since Roe vs. Wade was overturned; her support of these causes helped build up her presence on social media and increase her following.
