All eyes will be on Alex Mack as he and the Atlanta Falcons play in the Super Bowl today, while wife Alyssa Ropes Mack will be watching on with pride. Alyssa tends to stay out of the spotlight for the most part, content to let her husband “steal the show.”
Because Alyssa stays out of the news, there’s not a lot known about her. She was using her maiden name up until recently, so it appears that she and her husband were married within the last few years.
She taught math at Olmsted Falls High School in Ohio. On the Rate My Teachers website, students talked about Alyssa Ropes and in reviews, mentioned how their teacher was dating an NFL football player. Some students really liked her and others did not, which isn’t unheard of for high school teachers. Students commenting mentioned that she no longer teaches there.
Below is a video from 2014 posted by an Alyssa Ropes on YouTube, showing a clip of her teaching math:
In a bio posted by Alyssa Ropes for Olmsted Falls High School, she mentions that she wanted to teach high school math her entire life. She got an undergrad from Bowling Green State University and enjoys football, volleyball, shopping, working out, music, and movies. She mentioned that she was a huge Ohio State and Cleveland Browns fan. Before Alex signed a five-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons, he played for the Cleveland Browns after he was drafted in 2009.
You can see a video of Alex and Alyssa below, from when they attended the premiere of Amazon Studios’ Gleason in Los Angeles:
