With his teammates gathered around him after Tuesday’s practice, Huskies linebacker Psalm Wooching asked his girlfriend, former UW softball player Courtney Gano, to marry him.
She said yes.
The proposal went down at midfield at Husky Stadium, and, as you can see in the above tweet, Wooching used the stadium scoreboard as a prop. UW kicker Cameron Van Winkle helped with some of the logistics, and said there was a song playing as Wooching popped the question to Gano, who was blindfolded and wearing Van Winkle’s Bose headphones to maintain the element of surprise as she was driven to the stadium.

“I think they blindfolded her at her house so she wouldn’t really know,” said Van Winkle, a fellow senior and one of Wooching’s close friends. “Brought her in, un-blindfolded her, got Psalm in front with all of us swaying back and forth.”
Wooching, a fifth-year senior from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, will play his final home game Saturday when the Huskies host Arizona State at 4:30 p.m.
