Danny Trevathan has made headlines many times for good reasons, not as good and as at the time of writing this piece only an embarrassing piece (reason). The epic day was in a game against the Baltimore Ravens when he played for the Denver Broncos in week 1 of the 2013 season. Danny dropped Joe Flacco from a beautiful game in the fourth quarter, only to drop the ball off the sidelines, all in a hurry for a stylish touchdown celebration that he regretted only seconds later. Well, the events of this game and possibly this season are all in the past, but we can’t help but remember him when, for reasons easily deduced (the most embarrassing games in the NFL), DeSean Jackson and Leon Lett are mentioned.
Away from the bad media, there is a lot of good that has happened in this young man’s life and in his football career, without leaving out his love and relationship life. Not only will you learn all about it, but you will also get to know him better, just as he told you his story himself.
Early Life and Career
Danny was named Daniel Eugene Trevathan after he was born in Youngstown, Ohio on March 24, 1990, the son of Vincent Hicks and Michelle Hicks. His father was an athlete who played football in college for the University of Toledo.
As an adolescent, the Youngstown boy attended Leesburg High School in Leesburg, Florida, where he quickly developed a taste for American football and played. Among his peers, he was famous for his spectacular playing style and his unique ability to turn a game around for his team. After high school, Danny enrolled at the University of Kentucky and improved his game the more he played for the university football team.
He led the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in 2010 with 144 tackles and was well on his way to being named All-Conference first team by several organizations, including the SEC coaches. In his final year of college, in which he was honored with the highest distinction as a college linebacker, he again led the SEC in most tackles.
Danny Trevathan found his way into the National Football League (NFL) as the 25th linebacker (188th in total) to be selected in the 6th round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He made his professional debut in the Broncos’ season opener when he defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19. Danny’s first tackle of his career came when he attacked running back Mike Goodson in the fourth quarter in a 37-6 win over the Oakland Raiders in fourth quarter. After a rookie season with many premieres, he had his first sack in his career against Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals in a 31-23 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. All in all, he finished his rookie season with 33 combined tackles (22 solos), 3 passing shots, and one sack in 26 games and 16 stars.
Trevathan had a good time with the Broncos throughout his stay with them before he left at the end of 2015. After leaving the club he became a free player, signed with the Chicago Bears on 9 March 2016, and has been with the team ever since.
He joined “The Monsters of the Midway” for a four-year contract worth $28 million, which includes a guaranteed $12 million with a signing bonus of $5 million.
Danny Trevathan’s Wife, Girlfriend
When it comes to love and relationships, Danny is no longer on the lookout, the Bears’ linebacker has found a girlfriend for himself; a lady he knows straight from college when he was still working on building his game.
The lucky lady is LaToria Burns, originally from Jackson, Mississippi. She is the daughter of Vicky Burns and became a mother herself in November 2013, when she gave birth to her husband, a girl named Danoir Louise Trevathan, a baby that bound them together in a deeper love than you can ever imagine.
They are not married yet, so some people might not call her a wife. But their relationship has flourished since it began, and when it was time to walk down the aisle, they would know what to do.
The family of three lives in a $1.3 million mansion in the Riverwoods that Danny bought for their comfort. The house is an appropriate family home, which he chose after looking at 35 others that did not impress him. It is a two-story building, built-in 2012, on a 1.89-acre lot, and includes a full bath, two half baths, a movie theater, and a playroom, among other comforts.

As a footballer, Danny Trevathan has an impressive physique. He stands at a height of 1.85 m (6 feet) and weighs 109 kg (240 lbs). His chest, biceps, and waist measurements are not available at the moment.
