Trishia was immediately attracted when she saw LaVar for the first time. But she did not know who he was at that and asked her friends about him.
But she was disappointed as there were lots of negative news about football players at that time.
After that she became mean with him, not agreeing to take pictures with him when he asked.
But when she sat and talked with him, she was so much impressed by how much down to earth, and normal LaVar was despite being a football star.
She was carried away by the values LaVar had and thought to her self that if he is precisely the kind of person who he says he is then she will marry him.
And they now have been together for more than 14 years and LaVar never changed.
