UNC's Ebron proposes on Empire State Building before NFL Draft
Posted May 8, 2014
One way to keep your mind off of the anticipation that comes with being a probable first-round NFL draft pick is to go sight-seeing with your girlfriend. North Carolina’s Eric Ebron took that to a whole different level Thursday when he proposed to Tar Heels basketball player Brittany Rountree on top of the Empire State Building.
In the awkward exchange between Ebron and Rountree with a host of friends around, the tight end is visibly nervous, prompting her to ask, “Why are you asking so weird.”
Eventually, after some hesitation, repeated sentences and a prolonged hug, Ebron dropped to a knee and popped the question. The answer, of course, was yes.
