Zach Wilson’s Mom Reacts To Trending On Social Media During Draft Night

Zach Wilson was the #2 pick in the draft but was overshadowed by his mom who began trending on social media on draft night.

On Thursday night, Wilson’s mom Lisa became a top trend on Twitter as people named her the “MVP” of the draft.

Wilson even had to field an awkward question about the attention his mom was getting during an appearance on New York radio.

Craig Carton: “Your mom has become the lead story, and I say that respectfully because people are like, ‘the star of the first round of the draft is Mrs. Wilson because she’s a very attractive woman.’”

“And I’m just wondering how awkward that is for you, that you just got picked second overall in the NFL draft, and the focus is, wow, his mom is really hot.”

Zach Wilson ” Yeah, it’s not my favorite for sure. I like to keep her out of the spotlight. She’s an awesome lady and I love having her support.”

On Saturday, Wilson’s mom reacted to all the headlines she’s generated on her Instagram stories and while she seems a little embarrassed by the whole thing she’s taken it all in stride.
