Maria Taylor: ESPN Sports Anchor/Analyst, Planning to Get Married? Who is her Boyfriend? Dating?

Pardon us if I break anyone’s hearts with this piece of news.

But it seems the hot and beautiful Maria Taylor Hyatt from ESPN has apparently found herself the best suitor for marriage. The “Mysterious man” in the photos she shared on her Instagram wall has apparently fueled the rumors igniting all sorts of speculations in the media.

As a talented analyst and host for ESPN and The SEC Network, Taylor has spellbound the sports world all this long, dealing with the assignments to cover football, volleyball and men’s and Women’s basketball based on college.

Characterized by her lanky height of 6 feet 2 inches, she credits her earlier indulgence in sports while in her school and college for the vast knowledge she possesses about the way the sporting world runs.

"When Alpharetta native Maria Taylor introduces herself to hulking SEC football players, their typical response is, 'You're huge!' "

From an Avid Player to Sportscaster:

Born on May 12, 1987, she was destined to create big in the sports field. However, she initially took the direct way of making the difference through playing herself.

Attending Centennial High School, she was introduced to the beauty of basketball and volleyball, and she became pretty inclined to it.

By the time she came of age for University, she had already clinched numbers of awards under her name, including Fulton County Scholar-Athlete of the Year and three-time All-region Selection that got her sports scholarship at the University of Georgia in 2005.

She also made it into the 2004 USA Volleyball Junior National A2 team. Before pursuing her media career in 2008, she was an avid sportswoman and was fourth all-time in total points with 2,020 points by the end of her career

She started her career as a regular in CSS’s volleyball broadcasts after graduation.

Since then, she has never looked back climbing stairs after stairs from sideline reporter on ESPN2 to a college analyst and football reporter on the SEC Network since 2014.


The sportscaster has had a silent personal life to this date remaining away from publicizing her relationship status and others. Despite having the microphone glued to her all the time, it is ironical how her private details fail to be breached.

Is Taylor Looking to get Married? Husband?

However, it seems she has finally decided to open up a bit. Her recent Instagram posts depict her pairing alongside this mysterious man. And they are seriously engrossed into each other.
