Asked the girl of my dreams to marry me.
After a big win over Arlington Baptist, Lamar junior forward Colton Weisbrod joined his teammates in a Cardinal tradition of singing the school song, but after, something not-so usual to the Cardinals’ court happened.

As the Kansas State women’s basketball team began preparing for its season, one senior got a big surprise on the court. During a visualization drill, Kindred Wesemann’s boyfriend came up behind her, dropping to one knee to propose after she turned around.
In October, the Samford Bulldogs’s junior linebacker Deion Pierre helped bring home a win over VMI after nabbing a pick six, but that’s not all he picked up that day. Following the game, Pierre’s teammates helped him orchestrate an elaborate proposal to ask his girlfriend to marry him.
After Iowa’s big win over Iowa State in September, wide receiver Matt VandeBerg grabbed the catch of his life (and we aren’t talking about his 100 receiving yards and touchdown during the game). He proposed to his girlfriend, who was sitting in the stands.
Before UGA’s football season started, linebacker Ryne Rankin made a move to start something much bigger than another football season—the rest of his life. Just outside of Sanford Stadium the Bulldog football player proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend.
During the 2015-16 basketball season, Texas Tech’s Toddrick Gotcher put up 13 points during his senior night and then capped it off with a proposal to his girlfriend in front of all the Red Raider fans.
After scoring 27 points against rival Oklahoma State on Senior Day, West Virginia’s Bria Holmes added another memorable moment to the day when her boyfriend interrupted a post-game interview to ask her a much bigger question.
Virginia’s Lauren Coughlin shot a final-round of 70 to win the ACC golfing championship and lead her team to the conference title, but that wasn’t even the best part of the day for her. During the trophy ceremony, her UVA football player boyfriend proposed.
On Senior Day in 2015, Clemson’s senior offensive lineman Daniel Stone was introduced and, from there, headed straight for his girlfriend, who was standing on the sidelines. He pulled a ring out of his helmet and asked her to take a last name known for being a wall on the Tigers’ line.
While this one goes way back to the 2014 College World Series, it is one of the best college proposals out there. After Brian Miller and the Vanderbilt baseball team won the College World Series, he ran over to his girlfriend and proposed.
