Notre Dame forward Jack Cooley took what was sure to be a memorable night on Wednesday and brought it to another level. During his team’s senior banquet, Cooley concluded his speech by calling his girlfriend Jackie Oberlander to the stage. His teammates, who knew what was coming, had their cell phone cameras rolling. We all know what he did next. Cooley dropped down on one knee and proposed to Oberlander. She said yes. Junior guard Eric Atkins posted a quick clip of the proposal on Twitter. vine.co/v/bUaYLb6K9LD — Eric Atkins (@EAtkins0) April 18, 2013 Cooley, who was one of four seniors saying goodbye to the Irish, said Oberlander had previously told him that she wanted to engagement to be public and recorded. “She told me that she wanted it public and recorded,” Cooley told The South Bend Tribune on Wednesday night. “She wanted me to do it around Senior Night (the March 5 game against St. John’s) but I had to focus on the game. I was running out of opportunities to do it in front of crowds like this so I just thought I would do it now.” He also admitted that he didn’t purchase the engagement ring until last Thursday, but it appears everything went off pretty smoothly. It wasn’t quite as memorable as the most recent proposal we shared with you here on LBS, but anything beats ending up like this guy. H/T The Dagger
