Annie Apple lands job on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown “Details”
- Updated: May 24, 2016
Annie Apple is joining ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown this fall as a contributor.
Last month, former Ohio State Buckeyes defensive back Eli Apple was selected 10th overall by the New York Giants in this year’s NFL draft. Afterward, of the more entertaining storylines to come out of the selection was Apple’s mother Annie Apple, who was present with him on draft night. Mama Apple wrote a piece for Sports Illustrated and in it, she revealed that she told her son not to wear a Rolex to the draft because he was “an unemployed college dropout.” Many sports fans praised Annie for the decision, which led to her appearing on ESPN’s His & Hers to elaborate.
Today, it has been announced that ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown will be adding Annie Apple as a contributor to the show this fall. Bill Hofheimer of ESPN made the news public today (May 23) and said that it was Annie’s candidness that was the catalyst for the move.
“Annie caught our attention during the NFL Draft and when we met with her in-person at ESPN we were blown away by her relatability, her sense of humor and just how unafraid she is to speak her mind. Annie brings a very unique perspective as the mother of a current NFL player and as a fan, and we look forward to exploring a variety of different story ideas with her on Sunday NFL Countdown.”
I am beyond excited to be joining the ESPN family and quite honestly, happier than a Kardashian in an NBA locker room. #Blessed
