Ezekiel Elliott was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He had an immediate impact at running back position as he led the league in rushing yards in his rookie year. He continued to put up impressive numbers and after a holdout in 2019 he was awarded a six-year extension valued at $90 million, $50 million guaranteed.
While Zeke is one of the most recognizable stars in the NFL, not much is known about his longtime girlfriend. Here’s more about the very private Hall Woodard.
There isn’t much information about Woodard, but we do know that she was born on November 24, 1992 and is originally from Iowa. Her family moved to Texas and she attended JJ Pearce High School in Richardson, just outside of Dallas. Like Elliott, Woodard is an athlete, having been on the track team at school.
After graduating, she enrolled at Iowa State University and earned her degree in nursing in 2013.
Today, Woodard works as a personal trainer and aesthetic nurse. For the latter, she performs everything from botox injections to laser hair removal to dermabrasion and other cosmetic procedures.

Elliott and Woodard have reportedly been dating since 2017. However, they have gone through a few brief breakups over the years. According to SportsGossip.com, in one instance they split for nearly four months and unfollowed each other on social media after the running back was arrested by police over an altercation with security guards at the Electric Daisy Festival in Las Vegas.
After Elliott and his girlfriend reconciled, rumors began to swirl that he had proposed to her and that they were engaged. However, this news was never confirmed and Woodard was not seen with a ring.

Elliott and Woodard have done a good job of keeping their relationship out of the spotlight. It seems Woodard would appreciate that a lot, considering she likes to keep her love life with Zeke under wraps.
These days, her Instagram is set to private and she rarely uploaded photos of the athlete. In fact, there are only a few pictures of them together somewhere. In 2021, they were spotted together at a Dallas Mavericks game. Woodard has also been spotted in the stands at a few Cowboys games.
Before Woodard, Elliott made headlines for serious allegations by Tiffany Thompson, who called police in 2016 over domestic violence and accused him. It was also revealed that Elliott once filed a harassment lawsuit against Thompson with Frisco, Texas authorities. However, neither Zeke nor Thompson have ever been charged with a crime.
