Stanford lineman proposes after Rose Bowl win

Football will fade for most of these college athletes. They’ll be faced with “real life” things: bills, mortgages, relationship matters, future kids, and a life without competitive athletics. Which is why, Stanford lineman Brendon Austin is a smart man.

After his team’s impressive 45-16 drubbing of Iowa in the Rose Bowl, the bear of a man, got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. She said an exhilarating yes.

Stanford fans were treated to one heck of a night. A Rose Bowl win on New Year’s day and the witnessing of an engagement.

Austin was pretty sly. He handed his ring to an equipment manager, to keep it under wraps until after the game. His girlfriend was sitting in the first row, thinking the night was all about football. Boy was she surprised!

My advice: Keep it fresh Mr. Austin. Always keep her surprised.
