Sam Dekker’s girlfriend Olivia Harland became engaged to him in May of 2017. She also showed up in none other than GQ in an article back in 2015. The article simply talked about her being the next big reporter. Well, she definitely is a rocket when it comes to early career success. When the article came out, 22 year-old Olivia worked three big-time broadcasting jobs and somehow still managed to be in college. I’m not sure how someone does that, but she managed to do it. She seems incredible to me. These types of people who can balance so many responsibilities are a wonder to behold. I’m sure Sam thinks the exact same thing.
The magazine asked her how she does it, and she said she finds a steady routine and sticks to it. The jobs are ESPN college football reporter, Fox Sports reporter for the Atlanta Hawks, and ACC All Access for all ACC sports. They require a lot of research which she always prepared like clockwork. The interviewer asked her about how she responds to social media attention. She said the only time she responds to comments is when someone challenges her facts. This basically means there’s no point in expecting a response about how how you think she is, guys. Sam Dekker’s girlfriend also gets annoyed when that’s all you pay attention to.
I can also tell you that Sam Dekker’s girlfriend started to date her after the article came out. She explicitly stated she went on a few dates but that she wasn’t “dating” anyone at the time. Olivia went on to say whoever she would couple up with next needed to be extremely confident and dedicated to their goals like she is. Well, message received! Guess which guy possesses dedication and confidence? Her 6’9″ professional basketball player future husband!
