Jacoby Brissett’s girlfriend Sloan Young is his daily inspiration. His words. Not ours.
Since arriving in New England, and taking on the Patriot Way, Brissett’s social media has gone dark. In light of going dark, we assumed that Brissett was single. In haste, we actually initially recommended that Jacoby Brissett begin dating Aly Raisman (assuming either party was interested). Welp. We were wrong. It happens.
Many an astute reader pointed out that we were wrong. Fine. You win this one, internet. Because, Jacoby Brissett took to Twitter back in March to call out his affinity and inspiration for the one they call Sloan.
Daily inspiration @XoxSloan !

Sloan appears to have adopted the Patriot Way as well. Since his ascension to a starting role, Jacoby Brissett’s girlfriend’s social media has gone dark as well. We do know, however, that Sloan is a highly devout Christian. She had a short lived blog in the summer of 2015. But despite it’s quick beginning, and quicker end, you can glean a lot about her.
Jacoby Brissett’s girlfriend Sloan grew up in Greensboro, NC and currently lives in Raleigh, NC. She attended high school at Walter Hines Page High School. Sloan is an NC State graduate, with a degree in interpersonal communications. Clearly her communication skills do not lack. She writes eloquently about how life events have shaped her. She speaks with a deep passion about her relationship with, and journey to finding God.
Jacoby Brissett’s girlfriend also delves into her post college plans:
After graduating from college, I decided to follow my call to urban ministry. God gave me a love for the urban culture at an early age, and when I began life with Him he increased that love. I didn’t want to be a Christian that lives a safe life, only pursuing God on Sundays, or just tweeting bible verses as my ministry. I wanted to completely dive into serving others and going after people who the world would turn away from, the same group of people that Gods heart so desperately desires.
So, there it is. Say what you want, but she’s a laser focused individual with a purpose driven life.
And while the next line is totally tacky and trite, I thought of it 20 minutes ago, so I’m using it anyways.
When Jacoby takes that first snap against the vaunted Texans pass rush, we know she’ll be praying. We all will.
