Former Michigan State LB Greg Jones Wins Super Bowl, Gets Engaged

New York Giants linebacker Greg Jones, who played college football at Michigan State, had quite the Super Bowl Sunday. His Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 to win Super Bowl 46, and after the game Jones proposed to his girlfriend, former Michigan State basketball player Mandy Piechowski. She said yes in a very emotional and surprising moment.

"We had talked about wanting to get married next year possibly but in terms of this happening last night, no not at all. I didn't know he had a ring."

Jones got down on one knee on the field and said, "Amanda Piechowski, will you spend the rest of your life with me?"

Jones had teammate Christian Hopkins, a member of the Giants practice squad, hang on to the ring during the game. After it was over, Jones got the ring and got down on one knee to propose on a confetti-filled field. It sounds like it was a perfect moment, especially because Jones will be getting a ring of his own for winning the Super Bowl.
