You've got to do everything bigger in Texas — especially when it comes to proposals! Houston-based special education teacher and football coach Justin Outten did just that when he proposed to his girlfriend, Vanessa, by including his entire football team in a very special video.

Justin's clip included a staged fight on the field so Vanessa would be interested in watching it, and then about 75 of the Houston Westfield High football players got down on one knee with him and a sign that read, “Vee will you marry me?"

As she watched the video, Justin got down on one knee next to her with an engagement ring, and the rest was a total touchdown.

“It's a great combination of sports and true love," Justin says in an email.
