I can honestly say I didn’t see this one coming.

So, I came across an article that broke down the most googled athletes in America. Being the obsessed sports fan that I am, I just had to click into the article.

However, before I read the article, I just had to take a guess at who the most googled athlete in Texas was and my mind immediately went to Dak Prescott. Certainly, the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys is the athlete most Texans are searching for, right?

Wrong.

Tom. Brady. That’s right – the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is the most Googled athlete in Texas. Any other year I would call bullsh*t, but I can actually kind of understand it this year.

With his recent retirement and all of the speculation surrounding him calling it a day before he actually announced it, I can imagine a lot of people were obsessed with being among the first to know. For clarity, I’m not one of those people. Just sayin’.

Looking at the full list, it appears that elder statesmen contemplating retirement is driving more searches than anything else because Brady is tied with Aaron Rodgers for being the most googled athlete in the entire country.

Back to the aforementioned Dak Prescott. Not surprisingly, he’s the most-searched-for athlete from a Dallas professional sports team. He and the Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic were the only two from Dallas Teams to make the list. However, Jordan Spieth, who hails from Dallas, also made the list.

Take a look at the full list at this location.

Looking Back at the Dallas Cowboys 2021 Season

The Cowboys 2021 season got off to a strong start with a close game against the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though they lost the game, the Cowboys managed to keep it close, giving fans hope for a deep playoff run. They followed that game up with an impressive 6-game winning streak. However, things started to fall apart in the second half of the season, resulting in a disappointing home loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
