They live in Ohio during the off season.
Hoyer enjoyed being the starting QB for his hometown team.
“I’m so consumed by the daily grind and the stuff I need to do. It’s definitely special to run out in front of the hometown fans, but for me I just try to stay in this bubble,” Hoyer told USA Today in 2014.
2. She Married Hoyer in 2010
The couple has been together since high school and tied the knot on July 2, 2010.
She has been by Hoyer’s side throughout his Michigan State and NFL career.

He has also played in Arizona, Houston, Chicago, San Francisco and for his hometown Cleveland Browns.

The Hoyers have one son named Garrett and a daughter, Cameron, born in October 2013.
Hoyer’s career as a journeyman has taken his family to several places.
“My son was born in Rhode Island. He moved to Cleveland,” Hoyer told the Houston Chronicle. “His first Thanksgiving was a hotel in Pittsburgh. And his Christmas was at one of my teammates’ who I played with in New England, at his house in Arizona.”
4. Lauren’s Experience With Acupuncture Helped Brian Recover From Injuries
During the 2015 season, Hoyer struggled with multiple concussions. To help speed up his recovery, stepped outside the box, borrowing an experience from Lauren.
Hoyer’s wife used acupuncture during her first pregnancy. At 36 weeks, Lauren was told that because of her baby’s positioning, she would be forced to have a C-section.
“We went up to this woman doctor, she put the needles in,” Hoyer said. “They lit some roots and burned it. They had like yoga music on. I literally watched my wife’s stomach shift.”
Hoyer tried acupuncture, as well as hyperbaric chambers, to help recover from injuries. Hoyer only started nine games n 2015, but missed two of the final three weeks of the season while undergoing concussion protocol.
