AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, went from relative unknown to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model overnight. The internet can’t get enough of this southern sensation so when The War Eagle Reader revealed that Katherine has a sister named Laurie Webb who is a sophomore at Auburn. Laurie sat down for an interview with the official Auburn newspaper, read it below, and check out some of her photos.
The War Eagle Reader: How’s it been dealing with all the publicity your sister has received since Monday night?
Laurie Webb: “I feel like it’s kind of overwhelming. It’s really cool, though. It’s different because she’s my sister, and that’s never happened before. It’s just completely different.”
The War Eagle Reader: What was your reaction when you saw her on TV during the national championship?
Laurie Webb: “I was at my friend’s house, and we were just watching the game, and I saw my sister on TV, and she was on there forever. Then everybody was like, ‘Dude, that’s your sister!” And I’m like, ‘I know!” My phone blew up and ended up dying pretty much; it was crazy.”
The War Eagle Reader: What did you think about Brent Musberger’s commentary on Katherine’s appearance?
Laurie Webb: “I’m kind of used to it. I didn’t think too much of it. Well, first of all, it was loud, and I couldn’t really hear what he was saying. Eventually, I heard what he was talking about, and I didn’t really think much of it because that’s not out of the ordinary for Katherine. That happens all the time.”
