Kenneth Shane Pickett is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.
He played college football at the University of Pittsburgh and was drafted by the Steelers in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Pickett was born on June 6, 1998, in Oakhurst, New Jersey.
He attended Ocean Township High School.
Pickett graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in marketing.
Who is Kenny Pickett’s girlfriend Amy Paternoster?
Amy, the daughter of James Paternoster and Barbara Paternoster, is originally from Wall, New Jersey.
She is a talented soccer player and currently plays as a forward for Princeton, achieving the Academic All-Ivy in 2021.
Off the field, she’s majoring in Economics and last year spent her summer as an analyst with investment bank Goldman Sachs.
Amy spent a year in London at the School of Economics and holds her soccer coaching F-level license.
An avid knitter, the talented Senior scored three goals in 16 games last season, providing five assists along the way.
She and quarterback star Kenny made their relationship public in April 2021 – and 2022 is certainly looking like a bumper year for the power couple.
Not only is Kenny destined for the riches and prestige of the NFL, but they’re also engaged after Amy said yes in January.
She uploaded a picture to her Instagram of the pair celebrating the good news, with a snap of Pickett popping the question on one knee.
Amy wrote: “When I think of my life, I think of you – because I will never be able to go a day without you.
“I cannot put into words the love I have for you, but I promise to show you every day for the rest of my life.”
While Pickett added: “Got tired of calling you my girlfriend…here’s to a lifetime with the person I cherish more than anything in the world.
“You make me a better person and I could not imagine life without you. I love you more forever and always!!”
