The Seattle Seahawks came out victorious again in their recent game against the New York Giants. The team thrashed the Giants 24-3 during the Monday Night Football game. However, despite the win, the team might not be happy as they lost their QB Geno Smith to injury. The 32-year-old player suffered a knee injury during the game.
Geno Smith already missed his several NFL years after IK Enemkpali’s sucker punch. Now, when the 6-foot-3 QB was in his full form, he is out with injury. It happened after 25-year-old Isaiah Simmons tackled him near the sidelines. Smith even got angry and accused the Giants of “dirty play” which made him leave the game mid-way.
It must be frustrating for Geno Smith, 238 lb, as he has already seen so many obstacles in his career. However, he has a lovely wife and children who support him through all the thicks and thins.
Geno Smith is married to his lovely wife Haley Eastham
NFL star Geno Smith has a beautiful wife, Haley Eastham, who never fails to cheer for him. She is reportedly a patent litigation lawyer for Caldwell Cassady and Curry PC. Haley went to West Virginia University and was a law student there. The wife of the Seahawks star has also worked as a juvenile rights lawyer. Though she has gained popularity with Smith, she has achieved a successful career all by herself.
As per reports, Eastham and Geno Smith met for the first time at West Virginia University. Both of them were studying there and the NFL star used to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers. However, there’s no exact information about how the two met. After their first meeting, the two instantly clicked and began dating in college.
Born in Florida, Geno Smith stayed in touch with Haley even after he entered the NFL. He was the Jets’ 39th pick in the 2nd round of the NFL draft in 2013. After two years, the Pro Bowl and Eastham got married in July 2015. They tied the knot during the NFL offseason that year.
The Seattle Seahawks star and Haley have a son, Seven Santana, together. The lovely couple keeps posting pictures of their happy family on social media.
