Sorry if you were one of the thousands of eager males who sent marriage proposals to Alex Morgan during the World Cup — you don’t have a chance — if her boyfriend has anything to say about it, that is.
Servando Carrasco has been together with Morgan since the two played soccer at Cal together in college. Though the two were in opposite parts of the country playing professionally, they said Skype was the key to their relationship. And even though Morgan has exploded in popularity — she’s thrown out the first pitch at an MLB game and posed in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition — the two are still together.
Carrasco helped organize a deal for Morgan to be traded to Seattle so they could play in the same city. He also told The Seattle Times he sees the two staying together regardless of how much attention Morgan gets.
“In my eyes, she’s the same girl that I met in college. Nothing’s changed in our relationship,” Carrasco said. “We’re going to be together for a very long time. She’s a very down-to-earth girl. She doesn’t let all of the attention get to her.
“She’s been so successful lately, but she still has that same work ethic. The sky’s the limit for her, and I think the Olympics coming up is going to be a great stage for her. I’m sure she’s going to do some amazing things this summer. There’s a lot of opportunities coming up for her and I’m extremely proud of her.”
Carrasco’s comments are not surprising. Last September, Morgan even said all the attention she was receiving was a little weird, so it’s no surprise to hear she hasn’t changed.
