Today, we’re going to be listing the hottest male athletes involved in any professional league or sport from around the globe! We’re going to include all sports in the list such as football
That being said, making a list like this isn’t easy. The term “hotness” might mean different things to different people. So, to narrow things down, we’re going to stick to describing hotness in the most generic and universally accepted terms and limiting our lens to players who are active athletes.
Active athletes are those playing professionally right now. This, for example, takes out tennis player Roger Federer as he retired a few years ago, or David Beckham who’s managing Inter Miami, but hasn’t played professionally since 2013. We agree that this takes away a lot of eligible names like Kobe Bryant or Tom Brady—But we like to think of it as giving a chance to more active players.
With that out of the way, let’s see who the hottest athletes in 2023 are!
6. Joe Burrow
Joe Burrow is a professional American football player. He is the quarterback, the most coveted position, for the team Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are a powerful team and Burrow is instrumental to its success.
In fact, alongside players like Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen, Burrow is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now. He has exceptional skills on the field and a grand presence—But he has made it to our list for a solid reason. He has excellent looks and a great physique that is the dream of any quarterback who wishes to be popular and a hotshot on the field!
