A photo of a college football player’s on-field proposal following his team’s Week 2 game is going viral on social media today.
Florida State was shocked by Jacksonville State on Saturday night. The Seminoles lost on a crazy, last-second Hail Mary! Even the Florida State cheerleaders were absolutely stunned.
One Florida State player didn’t let the loss get to him, though.
A Florida State lineman decided to propose to his girlfriend on the field following the loss. A photo of the admittedly bizarre proposal moment has gone viral on social media.

It’s an odd sight, to be sure, but hey, do what you have to do.
Planning a proposal isn’t easy. This Florida State player likely had some family in town for the game and had been planning the proposal for a while.
Sure, it’s made a bit weirder by the loss – and the on-field celebrating by Jacksonville State’s players – but there’s nothing wrong with it.
He probably had family there and just let it rip. People will obviously dunk on it but this will be a bigger deal in his life in 20 years than FSU running cover 1 with 6 seconds left. Bigger than FSU football. Congrats to the happy couple. I’m all in. https://t.co/sq8mvSYsy4

Well said, Kevin.
Congrats to the Florida State football player and his girlfriend on the engagement! (We assume she said yes, anyway.)
