TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Godby High School girls soccer coach got a little help from his players when it came time to ask his girlfriend a very important question.
Coach Leonard Carper surprised his girlfriend Monday afternoon with an on-the-field marriage proposal.
After talking about practice and the week ahead, Carper huddled up with his players on the field. Video shows Carper kneeling to the ground as the girls surround him.
He says, "Break it down on three!" before the students chant, "1, 2, 3!" then turn around toward his girlfriend sitting at the edge of the field and scream, "Will you marry me?"
Carper then walks up to her and they kiss and embrace, to the sound of 'oohs' and 'aahs' from onlookers.
Then comes her response-- "Absolutely, baby!"
