Crafton set up a fake raffle for a game ball to take place before the game so that his girlfriend would have the winning ticket. To her surprise, however, it wasn’t just any soccer ball. The ball had the words “Will you marry me?” painted on it. Crafton proposed and Schoonover said yes.

Congratulations Kevin and Rachael!
