Career Journey As a Professional Footballer

Despite having a successful football career in high school and college, Keenum joined a professional team in 2012 as an undrafted free agent. He signed with the Houston Texans and spent his entire rookie season on the team’s practice squad. In 2013, he made his first professional appearance as a starting quarterback and threw his first touchdown in his pro debut on the 20th of October. He was, however, waived by the Texans on August 31, 2014, after the team’s 27-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts where he managed 350 passing yards and 26 rushing yards.

Between 2014 and 2016, Case shuffled around the Housten Texans and St. Louis Rams (now Los Angeles Rams). The two teams serially took turns to waive and reclaim him. He later settled with the Minnesota Vikings on March 31, 2017, after signing a one-year contract with the NFL franchise. He started in week two of the season and ended the season with several career highs, including the miraculous 29–24 win against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Round.

In 2018, he played for the Denver Broncos for a year before he moved to Washington Redskins where he spent a season. In 2020, the American football quarterback made his move to the Cleveland Browns on a three-year deal.

But then, they had never had the chance to get to know each other until the FCA event. Then, Kimberly was in her senior year in high school and like her husband, she loved sports and thrived as a pole vaulter for her school’s track team. Kim was also part of her school’s volleyball team.

Already famous as a standout quarterback for the Wylie Bulldogs, Case asked Kimberly to go get a snow cone with him. She agreed and that was how their love story began as high schoolers. Their love blossomed not only because they were both devoted Christians, but also because they shared a love for different sports including football.
