Atlanta Falcons' Keanu Neal: Hot Guys of Super Bowl 2017 Countdown!
The 21-year-old star safety was drafted in 2016 and this is his rookie season with the Falcons. You may be wondering if Keanu Neal was named after famous actor Keanu Reeves – and he was!
“A lot of people call me ‘The Matrix,’ but I never knew why and when I watched the movie, I didn’t really like it,” Keanu said in an interview last year. “My brother is a huge fan of Keanu Reeves, so he was like, ‘Keanu.’ (My pregnant mother) loved it and it stuck.”
Keanu has played very well his rookie year and is expected to be a huge part of the Falcons defense for years to come.
The Super Bowl airs this Sunday (February 5) when the Falcons will take on the New England Patriots.
