Courtney Eckhart is the long-time girlfriend of running-back LaMichael James. The two met during their time at the University of Oregon, where James was the star player and Eckhart the team’s cheerleading captain.

This blonde bombshell was born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon. She decided to attend U of O because it was just far away enough from her hometown to allow her to grow as a person without completely leaving her family behind. Eckhart graduated from college with a bachelor of science in sociology in 2011.
Eckhart has not entirely left the world of cheer behind and can frequently be spotted at Autzen Stadium helping the next generation of cheerleaders. She credits her experience with teaching her the ins and outs of football and for letting her witness all the action up close.
Today, Eckhart works as a leasing manager with Horizon Realty Advisers, a top property management company in Eugene. She hopes to continue working in real estate, potentially launching a career as a broker.
Although Eckhart and James have largely remained low-key about the details of their relationship, she announced the birth of their baby boy on Facebook and hinted that wedding bells might be in their future.
