During the on-field celebrations right after New York Giants won the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, linebacker Greg Jones got down on bended knee and proposed to his girlfriend Amanda Piechowski amid the confetti and the rapturous screaming and cheering from fans.
Greg Jones’ girlfriend, who he refers to as Mandy, said yes and immediately started crying.
Speaking to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, Greg Jones 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.”
Greg Jones said if his team had lost, he would have proposed another time.
The linebacker and Amanda Piechowki met three years ago at Michigan State but only started dating a year ago.
Amanda 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.
Greg Jones, a sixth-round pick, began the season as a starter on defense and has been a contributor on special teams.
