Needham’s Aly Raisman, an Olympic gold-medal gymnast, has finally admitted that she’s dating NFL practice squadder Colton Underwood.
The duo met after Underwood posted a viral video asking Raisman out in August. The pair, who walked the red carpet together at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year event on Monday night, had their first date in Denver that month, Raisman told People Magazine.
Underwood, who was cut from the Raiders’ practice squad this year, is currently a free agent. Raisman said they “kept it quiet for a while,” but now they’re going public.
Raisman, 22, is a Needham native and two-time Olympian who won gold in the team competition at London in 2012 and Rio earlier this year. She has also added a gold, three silvers, and a bronze in individual competition.
Underwood, 24, has spent parts of three seasons on four different practice squads, but has yet to appear in an NFL game.
