The night of Monday, January 8, 2018, was special for all the Alabama Crimson Tide players – the team won the national championship after defeating the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23. But for the offensive lineman Bradley Bozeman, 21, it was not the last victory he got that day.

Just like his other teammates, Bozeman received a national championship ring – the second in his sports career. However, the footballer had a more precious ring he wanted to give to someone very special.

Sole minutes after winning the national championship, the athlete got down on his knee and proposed to his college sweetheart, Nikki Hegstetter.

The couple is dating for several years now and has a lot in common, including their love for sports – Nikki used to play for the Alabama College women's basketball team.

At first, Hegstetter was completely surprised by Bozeman's proposal. But as soon as she realized it was for real, the girl said yes even before the man could slide the ring on her finger.
