Georgia High School Football Coach Recruits His Players for Proposal to Girlfriend

Playing Georgia High School Football Players Help Coach Propose to Girlfriend

For one Georgia high school football coach, popping the question was truly a team effort. 

Nafis Pickett, the recruiting coordinator and a coach at Lanier High School, and his now-fiancé, Ashley Wilson, had been dating for just over a year when he decided to ask her to marry him. 

"She knows that I love coaching but for her to do that and still be around me, that truly means a lot," Pickett told Inside Edition.com.

But he needed a little help.

On Nov. 2, at the end of a game, the players gathered around Wilson in a circle, presenting her with red roses to tell her they appreciate all that she does. 

And then Pickett burst in. 

"She’s been with me through everything in I do," Pickett tells Wilson in the now-viral proposal video. "So it's only right that I ask her, 'Will you marry me?'"

An emotional Wilson said "yes," kicking off the rest of their life together.
