Whitney Risner and Dalton Risner’s Relationship
The Fort Hayes basketball athlete had heard of Kansas State footballer Dalton Risner in passing. However, they would meet at the Lake of the Ozarks, where her parents have a home, and she had a summer job, and Risner was vacationing.
After that meeting, Risner slipped into her DMs. But the basketballer wasn’t single at the time and friend-zoned Risner.
A year later, she was newly single and found out Risner was in the Ozarks and reached out to him via Snapchat, which led to romance.
The Denver Broncos selected Risner in the 2019 NFL draft, and they maintained a long-distance relationship while the basketball player continued college. She was initially not ready to settle down at that time.
“He was going to the NFL. I was a basketball player and nursing student,” she said. “I was like, ‘What does this guy want?’ I was like ‘Go enjoy yourself. Why are you trying to make this work?’ He was very patient and I was immature. He kept being persistent and showing me who he was, and I’m glad it all worked out.”
They worked on Dalton Risner’s RisnerUp Foundation and spent much of their downtime together. When Dalton Risner proposed in 2021, his girlfriend said yes. They married on June 19, 2022.
