ND’s Cooley Proposes to GF at Banquet
His successful college career is over, but that didn’t stop Notre Dame basketball’s Jack Cooley from scoring one more time with a South Bend crowd watching and cheering.
At the Irish’s senior banquet on Wednesday, the first team All-Big East forward brought girlfriend Jackie Oberlander on stage, dropped to one knee and proposed. Much to the delight of the crowd (and of course Cooley), Oberlander said yes.
“She told me that she wanted it public and recorded,” Cooley told The South Bend Tribune. ”She wanted me to do it around Senior Night (the March 5 game against St. John’s) but I had to focus on the game. ... I was running out of opportunities to do it in front of crowds like this so I just thought I would do it now.”
Nicely done, Jack. Here’s hoping you get an NBA roster spot for next season as an early wedding present.
