LeGarrette Blount’s Girlfriend Merissa: College Sweethearts
Merissa and LeGarrette met at the University of Oregon in 2009, LeGarrette’s senior year. Merissa gave birth to their son at the beginning of the football season. J ust before their son was born Blount ran into some trouble when he punched a Boise State defensive end. He faced a 10 game suspension and the possibility of not being drafted into the NFL at all. Despite the media uproar Merissa stood by her man and they made it through the season. After reinstatement, Blount played a huge role in leading The Ducks to a coveted victory at the Rose Bowl. When the game finished he asked a police officer to escort him back onto the field. But, not to address the fans chanting his name. It was to find Merissa and Jr. and deliver them a rose.
LeGarrette Blount’s girlfriend Merissa was truly his college sweetheart. She became famous for sporting a Ducks sweatshirt with “Lady Blount” embroidered on the back. The couple was reportedly engaged at one point. But, in September 2013, when asked about Merissa by a reporter for the Oregonian, LeGarrette replied “… there is no more Lady Blount”. Sadly it appeared that this love story came to an end.
LeGarrette Blount’s Girlfriend in 2017?
But, fear not folks. Blount remained an involved and loving father. And in late 2017, LeGarrette Blount’s girlfriend Merissa accompanied LG to the Patriots ring ceremony.

With Lady Blount by his side, LeGarrette seems to be doing just fine!
