Tom Brady is one of the most famous athletes in the world, and there was a recent study about America’s Favorite Athletes Across each state. The state of Wisconsin has had many great athletes throughout history, whether they are from there or have played professional sports there.
Some of the names that come to mind are Green Bay Packers legends Bart Starr, Aaron Rodgers, and Brett Favre. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Championship Giannis Antetokounmpo is another name that comes to mind, and another that comes to mind for the Milwaukee Brewers is Ryan Braun.
According to research. Tom Brady is America’s favorite NFL athlete and overall athlete. He dominated 45 of the 50 states in this research, including the state of Wisconsin. The only five states he was not the most famous athlete were in Wyoming, Ohio, California, Utah, and Washington.
Josh Allen, the quarterback of the Buffalo Bills, was the most favorite athlete in the state of Wyoming. This makes a ton of sense because he played quarterback at the University of Wyoming in college. Josh Allen has done a lot for that football program ever since leaving the university. He is also one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Lebron James is the most popular player in the NBA, and he is the most famous athlete in the states of California, Utah, and Washington. California makes sense because he lives there and also plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. It is intriguing how he landed. He is the most famous athlete in Utah and Washington, though.
What was surprising is that Lebron James was not the most famous athlete in the state of Ohio. It belonged to quarterback Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals. He started his collegiate career with the Ohio State Buckeyes before playing at LSU and winning a national title there in 2019. He has revived the Cincinnati Bengals franchise ever since and also resides in Athens, Ohio.
It is fascinating that Josh Allen and Joe Burrow appear to be more famous than Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II. He is the best quarterback in the NFL at the moment, and Tom Brady could be considered the greatest of all-time considering the fact that he won seven titles, including winning one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 against the Kansas City Chiefs (Super Bowl LIV).
