There has been a rumor spreading around the internet that Peyton Hillis got married yesterday in Fayetteville, AR. A few weeks ago a Cleveland newspaper claimed through a team source that Hillis was engaged. Then the rumor mill started turning and seems to have stemmed from an anonymous message board. The board makes a few claims, one being that the girl’s name is “Amanda”. It was picked up from various websites at that point and has been basically thought of as true by everyone except Razorback fans. Even CBSSports.com made mention to the rumors in a recent article.
After searching the city of Fayetteville’s website for public records on weddings and not finding anything, we contacted the Washington County Clerk. They had no record of a Peyton Hillis getting married. Next we searched the Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) records and couldn’t find anything about a Peyton Hillis getting married there either. We’re waiting response from the Faulkner County City Clerk to see if Hillis might have filed for a marriage license in his hometown of Conway. We’ll update once we hear back from them.
[update] Hillis has not filled for a marriage license in Faulkner County.
