A Famous Family
Akins' future husband isn't her only famous family member. Her father, Marty Akins, is one of the most successful quarterbacks in Texas history. The only QB to start three years for Darrell Royal, he set multiple school records (many of which were later broken by Vince Young), was named an All-American in 1975 and was inducted into the school's Hall of Honor in 1995.
"I grew up going to the football games," says Angela. "(My dad) instilled in me the love that I have for the Longhorns at a very young age."
For those who know your Akins Family tree, that makes Angela the cousin of prolific New Orleans Saints quarterback and 10-time Pro Bowler Drew Brees, who is the nephew of Marty. (Twitter/TheAngelaAkins)
