This Football Punter Proposed To His Girlfriend At Halftime In The Most Adorable Way

This is too cute! Congrats!

Ohio State football player Drue Chrisman put a lot of effort into planning out the perfect marriage proposal. Once he knew how he wanted to do it, he had to figure out a way to get his girlfriend onto the field at halftime — in front of cameras and a stadium full of fans — without suspecting a thing. So he certainly had his work cut out for him.

But thanks to the help of his teammates, he was able to come up with a believable story that his girlfriend, Avery Eliason, would go along with.

“We told them we were going to have a kicking competition for the girlfriends of the kickers to see if they could kick, too,” Chrisman told The Columbus Dispatch. “So she had no idea.”

When Eliason walked out onto the field, Chrisman was already on one knee — which made sense, as he had to hold the ball for her to kick. But instead of allowing her to follow through with her kick, he took advantage of his bended knee position and proposed to her on the spot.

The sweet, special moment was caught on video, and you can see the clip on Eliason’s Instagram:
