Minnesota Vikings safety Cedric Thompson shared the beautiful story of his heartwarming marriage proposal to his girlfriend Charlotte.
While the focus for young players in the NFL is football, there is a lot of life going around that can make for some magical moments off the field. That lesson is learned in a video involving Minnesota Vikings safety Cedric Thompson.
Thompson has moved around to several different practice squads in his first two years in the league. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL draft before moving to the Patriots and finally signing with the Vikings on October 25, 2016 and signing a reserve/futures contract after the 2016 season.
However, this video has very little to do with football. Instead, it follows Thompson as he prepares to propose to his girlfriend Charlotte and shows the execution of his plan. Here is the video titled ‘An NFL Players Heartwarming Proposal: A Love Story’ from TRIBETYLER on YouTube:
Opening with a small amount of background information, the video quickly transitions to Thompson’s proposal preparations.
