A.J. McCarron’s mother Dee Dee Bonner is in some hot water for a tweet she sent during Jameis Winston’s postgame speech after the BCS National Championship Game.

But with McCarron, it’s not just him who has become extremely popular.

At each of McCarron’s games, his mother, Dee Dee Bonner, and girlfriend, Katherine Webb, are usually in attendance. The two are frequently shown together on TV, and they share pictures on social media of their time at the games.
