Man knocks his girlfriend to the ground while trying to surprise her with a proposal

One man’s proposal swept his girlfriend off her feet, literally, after he accidentally knocked her to the ground mid-way through her volleyball game. 

Kyle Pierce interrupted his girlfriend, Jenna Eller’s, college volleyball match at Concord University in Seward, Nebraska, on October 31 when he entered the court from the back while she was attempting to hit the volleyball.

She was running to the back of the court to hit the ball before running directly into her boyfriend, who works at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and falling to the ground.

Despite the fall to the ground, Jenna seemed excited to see her boyfriend as he held a volleyball of his own in his hands.   

The volleyball read: ‘Will you marry me?’ 

Once Kyle helped Jenna back up onto her feet, he handed her the volleyball and proceeded to get down on one knee to the shock of the player.
