ATHENS, Ga. -- When Chris Burnette decided to ask the biggest question of his life, about 50 of his Georgia teammates came along to offer moral support.

So it’s a good thing that Arielle Haynes, now his fiancee, accepted when Burnette -- the Bulldogs’ starting right guard -- proposed marriage Sunday at a church service. (Watch the video on YouTube.)

“I was sitting kind of near [left tackle Kenarious Gates] and he looks at me and says, ‘If she says no, we’re taking her out back.’ We knew she wasn’t going to say no, but it was just funny,” joked center David Andrews. “I think that says a lot about this team and how we all have each other’s backs no matter what. But it was awesome and there’s not a better person she could marry than Chris.”
