Both Greg Jones and his high school sweetheart won rings on Super Bowl Sunday.
The rookie linebacker proposed to his girlfriend as confetti streamed down on him and his victorious teammates on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Jones' girlfriend, Amanda, said "Yes" just minutes after the Giants' 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots.
"She was bawling," Jones told The Star-Ledger Monday as the Giants left their hotel to return home. "I was like, 'I don't know how long she's going to keep crying.'"
He said the proposal was contingent on a Giants victory.
The 23-year-old, drafted in the sixth round in 2011, asked a teammate who was not playing to hold onto the ring for him during the game.
Jones and his fiancee met three years ago at Michigan State, and have been dating for about a year.
Jones is the backup middle linebacker for the Giants, playing primarily on special teams.
