ATHENS, Ga. -- Chris Burnette’s pastor at Athens Church, Sean Seay, was preaching about courage on Sunday afternoon when he called Burnette and his girlfriend, Arielle Haynes, to the stage to demonstrate courage in action.

Little did Haynes know exactly how much nerve her boyfriend was about to demonstrate.

Burnette -- a junior offensive guard -- had filmed a video explaining to Haynes how much he cherished their relationship and how he wanted to build a future with her. And when it ended, he got down on a knee before hundreds of fellow congregants -- a crowd that included about 50 members of the football team -- and proposed marriage.
