How we met: Katie and I met when I joined the Cheerleading team 4/C (freshman) year at the Academy, and we were put together as stunt partners. We worked so well as a team I knew she was the one!
how they asked: I wanted to make my proposal to Katie very special and something we remember for the rest of our lives. Since we met on the cheerleading team I thought the Army Navy game our senior year would be the perfect opportunity.
I started planning about a month before the game and got our team and even the band in on the proposal. Our Drum and Bugle Corps (D&B) plays the song “Hey Baby” and our cheerleading team even has a dance for the song. So at the end of the third quarter I told everyone (except for Katie of course) that D&B was going to play “Hey Baby” and to just stop dancing in the middle of the song.
Despite the weather at the game being a bit less than desirable, it was perfect! I want to thank everyone that was involved and helped make this day special for me and my bride to be! The Navy Cheerleading team will always be a special part of our new family!
