One celebration obviously wasn’t enough for New York Giants linebacker Greg Jones on Sunday night.
During the on-field celebrations right after his team won the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, he got down on bended knee and proposed to his girlfriend Amanda Piechowski amid the confetti and the rapturous screaming and cheering from fans.
His girlfriend, who he refers to as Mandy, said yes and immediately started crying.
Speaking to the New jersey Star-Ledger, he said: ’She was bawling. I was like, “I don’t know how long she’s going to keep crying”.
‘She definitely knows how I feel. A speech wasn’t even needed.
‘Just everything we’ve been through together. She’s been here since day one and she knew me long before everything else.’
He said if his team had lost, he would have proposed another time.
The pair met three years ago at Michigan State but only started dating a year ago.
Miss Piechowski is a former Spartans basketball player and model.
The joyous moment — captured on camera — was reminiscent of Boise State’s Ian Johnson getting engaged after the Fiesta Bowl a few years ago.
Jones, a sixth-round pick, began the season as a starter on defense and has been a contributor on special teams.
