Since transferring over from UAB, linebacker Jake Ganus has been doing quite well at Georgia. He has 16 tackles and an interception across three games, and things got a bit better for him after the Bulldogs beat South Carolina on Saturday night.
Ganus met his girlfriend at midfield, got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes, and the happy moment was caught on Instagram.
It’s always heartwarming to see athletes propose to their significant others on a grand stage, and the look on Peyton’s face says it all. Look at her! She’s ecstatic!
This isn’t the first time such a thing has happened, as Boise State running back Ian Johnson proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend at the end of his team’s overtime win in the Fiesta Bowl in 2007.
Campus Sports sends its congratulations to the happy couple and wishes them the best!
Ganus and his teammates next take on the SWAC’s Southern Jaguars in Athens on Saturday.
