American football linebacker for the Carolina Panthers of the NFL, Luke Kuechly’s girlfriend is Shannon Reilly. Luke was drafted by the Panthers ninth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. He played college football at Boston College where he was recognized twice as a consensus All-American. Kuechly became the youngest recipient of the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award, in 2013.
When the couple first met
It is not much known about when these two started seeing each other. What we know that most of team mates and Luke’s family members seem comfortable with Shannon which indicates that they’ve seeing each other for a long time. There are no news of wedding as of yet, but both of them are young and are maybe thinking of concentrating on their careers first. Anyway, whatever floats their boat!
About Shannon Reilly
Shannon is a bright lady. She went to a prestigious Catholic high school in Cincinnati. In 2010, she graduated from the all girls college preparatory school Saint Ursula Academy. You’ll be surprised to know that Reilly herself was once an athlete. She started playing lacrosse in the sixth grade, and also played club field hockey when she was in high school. We think this is gotta be something which strengthens the bond between the two, sharing the same interests.
Reilly wants to be a Physician. She attended the University of Cincinnati, majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. She was a member of nationally recognized sorority Theta Phi Alpha during her college time. Shannon completed her graduation in 2014 from Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Minor of Chemistry, Biology/Biological Sciences, General.
We tried looking into her LinkedIn profile from where we got to know that she is currently attending Gardner-Webb University, getting her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies, expected to be completed in 2017.
All of this shows that Shannon is career oriented lady who believes making own name for herself. She currently aspires to becomes a surgeon or a surgeon’s assistant. She also writes a blog in which she mentioned, “I hope to one day be a physician assistant and continue on the medical tradition that my great-grandmother started and my dad and his brothers continued. I love sports, but play nothing serious at the moment and try to be involved on campus. I’m completely enjoying school, but am very excited to graduate!”
Coming to her personal life, Reilly loves traveling. In her junior year, Reilly studied in Copenhagen, Denmark, through the Danish Institute for Studying Abroad. Also, her family is quite a big one, she has five more siblings. Her sisters are Maddy, Shauna, and Marion, and her two brothers are Tommy and Matt Reilly.
What do you think about this beautiful couple? We think that an ambitious lady like Shannon is perfect for Luke. A lady that doesn’t want to become just a NFL Wag, but also a successful surgeon. We hope she reaches her goal soon. No one would be more happier than Luke we bet. Isn’t it?
