Former Baltimore Ravens Star Michael Oher Ties The Knot With Girlfriend Tiffany Roy

Former NFL star offensive tackle Michael Oher and longtime girlfriend Tiffany Roy officially tied the knot earlier this month.

On Nov. 6, Oher announced his marriage to Roy. Oher and Roy met at the University of Mississippi. They’ve been together for 17 years. The couple has four children, two sons and two daughters.

Oher was a superstar for the Ole Miss Rebels, earning two First-team All-SEC selections and a unanimous All-American in his final collegiate season. Oher won the 2008 Jacobs Blocking Trophy, which is presented annually to the best blocker in the conference.

The former Ole Miss product was drafted 23rd overall by the Baltimore Ravens in 2009, joining a stout offensive line led by guard and perennial Pro Bowler Marshal Yanda. Oher played a pivotal role in helping the Ravens win Super Bowl 47 over the San Francisco 49ers in the 2012 season.

After a long push, mobile sports betting is finally coming to the Old Line State. It’s expected to launch next week, and once sports betting goes live in the state, there will be Caesars Maryland promo codes offered to new customers. This will include $100 in free bets for users who deposit just $20.

Oher’s former team, the Ravens, are among the betting favorites to win Super Bowl 57 at multiple sportsbooks, including DraftKings (+1300, seventh-highest odds) and FanDuel (+1300, sixth-highest odds).

The Ravens lead the AFC North with a 6-3 record. They’ll try to improve to 7-3 on the season when they host the Carolina Panthers this Sunday.

Michael Oher’s Football Career

Before he became a household name in the NFL, Oher was already well-known across the football world. He was featured in Michael Lewis’ 2006 book, The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. Oher and New York Giants legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor were the main players Lewis focused on in the book.

Oher’s life and story was the key storyline of the critically-acclaimed 2009 film, The Blind Side, which was based off of Lewis’ novel. 

The film stars Sandra Bullock, who plays Oher’s adoptive mother, Leigh Anne Tuohy. Country music legend Tim McGraw plays Sean Tuohy, Oher’s adopted father who played basketball for Ole Miss. Oher is portrayed in the film by Quinton Aaron.

Oher was initially planning to enter the 2008 NFL Draft, but he decided to play one last year for the Rebels. It turned out to be the right decision, based on how his career turned out.

The 2009 Ravens were coming off an unexpected trip to the 2008 AFC Championship Game, the first season under quarterback Joe Flacco and head coach John Harbaugh. 

Oher and Yanda formed one of the best offensive linemen duos in the leagues in 2009, helping the team to nine wins and a wild card berth. The Ravens upset the New England Patriots 33-14 in the Wild Card Round, but their Super Bowl bid ended at the hands of the top-seeded Indianapolis Colts one week later.

Oher’s Ravens would experience more playoff heartbreak. They blew a 14-point lead to the archrival Pittsburgh Steelers and lost at Heinz Field in the 2010 Divisional Round. A year later, they narrowly fell to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game after Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yarder that would’ve sent the game to overtime

Injuries to Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Lardarius Webb put Baltimore’s Super Bowl 47 championship hopes on thin ice. They limped to the finish line with a 10-6 record, which was barely enough to win the AFC North.

After defeating the Colts in the Wild Card Round, the Ravens stunned the top-seeded Denver Broncos in overtime to reach the AFC Championship Game. There, they thoroughly dominated the New England Patriots 28-13 — booking their first trip to the Super Bowl in 12 years.

Oher and the Ravens held on for a thrilling 34-31 victory over San Francisco to win the Super Bowl, the second title in franchise history.

After the 2013 season, Oher left to sign with the Tennessee Titans. He was released after one year and wound up joining the Carolina Panthers. Oher helped the team to Super Bowl 50, where they lost to the Denver Broncos.

Oher missed all but three games in 2016 due to injuries, and the Panthers released him in the 2017 offseason. No other team would sign Oher, whose career was abruptly over after eight seasons.

His NFL career didn’t last that long compared to other great offensive linemen of the same era. But Oher indeed pieced together a fantastic career, highlighted of course by that Super Bowl 47 championship win.
