The son of a Colombian mother and a Cuban father, Alonso is a linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles (with fellow Latino Mark Sanchez). The Spanish speaker and Los Gatos, CA, native often makes it a point to give time to Spanish media and even tweets and Instagrams in Español. "My parents' first language was Spanish," Alonso said to Fox News Latino in July. "They thought it was important to have me growing up speaking both, and they didn't stray from that." Oh, and according to his Insta, he's just as obsessed with plantains and avocado as we are. A man after our own hearts.
