Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby has certainly got the eye on the field in the NFL this season. But many of his fans are also keen to know more about his girlfriend. So let’s have a look. Who is Maxx Crosby’s girlfriend Rachel Washburn?

Who is Maxx Crosby’s girlfriend Rachel Washburn?

Rachel Washburn is 25 years old and grew up in Hartland, Michigan, not far from Maxx, who was born in Rochester.

Having graduated from Hartland High School, Rachel attended Eastern Michigan University, majoring in sports management.

Her love of football, where she captained the school team, continued throughout university until she graduated in 2016.

And it was there she met Maxx Crosby, a student-athlete at Eastern Michigan. The couple have been together since 2017.

Who is Maxx Crosby?

Maxx Crosby was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He became an immediate hit with six tackles in his debut game, a 24-16 win over Denver Broncos.

The defensive end continued to impress as the season progressed, particularly in week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. His four sacks on Ryan Finley was the most made by a Raider in a single game since 2015.

Major changes at the Raiders

A year on, a lot has changed at the franchise. The Oakland Raiders have been renamed the Las Vegas Raiders, having relocated to Nevada in early 2020.

The team won its first match under the new name – against the Carolina Panthers in September – before winning their first home game at the new Allegiant Stadium against the New Orleans Saints.

Crosby remains a key player as the club sit second in the American Football Conference West ten weeks into the season.

His latest success involves recording his first sack on reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes in last month’s victory over Kansas City Chiefs.
