Danny Amendola had a pretty amazing day on Sunday. Not only did the Pats comeback to beat the Jags to secure another AFC Championship, he also caught seven balls for 84 yards, caught two touchdowns and completed a 20-yard pass. After the game he and his girlfriend Olivia Culpo, an actress and 2018 SI Swimsuit rookie, shared a moment worth a thousand words on the field at Gillette Stadium:
Guy’s a model, an NFL wide receiver, now has a shot to win his third Super Bowl ring, and has a girlfriend who was Miss Universe? Not too shabby for an undrafted free agent from Texas Tech.
Today has been an absolute dream come true!!! I can’t believe I am a 2018 sports illustrated rookie! This has been a goal of mine for my career and it is something that I have worked towards for years. I can’t wait for you all to see the final product from this shoot – It is unlike any other project. Today reminded me that hard work and perseverance can pay off in such a huge way.
