With an MVP title and a gold medal from the 2021 FIBA World Cup to his credit, the young shooting guard is looking at a very promising professional basketball career. That’s also drawn attention to his personal life. Keyonte George’s girlfriend, Yaya Owens, is also an athlete. So, we reveal more about her background in this Yaya Owens wiki.

Yaya Owens’ Family

Yahaira “Yaya” Owens was born on February 26, 2003. She hails from Texas and has at least one brother, Josiah, also known as LJ.

Their parents, Carmen Contreras and Lawrence George, support her and her brother’s athletic aspirations.
Lawrence George is a high school football coach and athletic coordinator. The family bounced around due to his job at various schools while he ensured his daughter’s training wasn’t affected.

Yaya Owens’ Education and Career

Yaya Owens played soccer at Hirschi High School, where her dad coached for a while. She seemingly transferred schools a few times due to her father’s job.

Lawrence George coached a football team while also taking his daughter to her practices and training. He was very emotional when Yaya’s hard work led her to commit to a D-1 soccer program.

The midfielder signed her national letter of intent to play soccer for Prairie View A&M University in 2020. She graduated from high school in 2021 and has been a part of the Prairie View A&M team since.

Yaya Owens and Keyonte George’s Relationship

Keyonte George is from Lewisville, Texas, where Yaya Owens lived for a while. They’ve been together since they were both teens in high school, and their relationship survived the long distance when he transferred to Florida.

George went on to play basketball at Baylor University. Moreover, the U.S. national team MVP has since declared for the 2023 NBA draft.

The young couple is not very active on their respective social media, making many speculate if they’re still together. However, Owens does share tweets praising George, and her parents also cheer for him and the Baylor Bears.
