Shortly after claiming victory at Super Bowl LVI, Los Angeles Rams’ safety Taylor Rapp proposed to his high school sweetheart, Danielle Johnson.
Friends, family and teammates gathered around to witness Rapp popping the question to Johnson, who happily accepted.
The team posted a video of the proposal on their official Twitter page and congratulated the couple for winning “more than one ring tonight.”

According to The Sporting News, Rapp and Johnson both attended Sehome High School and even went to prom together in 2015.
The two maintained a long-distance relationship during college, as Johnson played volleyball for both Seattle Pacific University and Southern Oregon University, while Rapp played football for the Washington Huskies.
Super Bowl LVI was Rapp’s first Super Bowl win, in which his Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals with a score of 23-20. According to KTLA, The Rams are only the second team in history to win the Super Bowl on a home field.
Rapp, the second Asian American to be drafted into the NFL in 2019, was born to a Chinese mother from Shanghai and a white father from Canada. As an Asian American pro football player, Rapp wants to inspire Asian American kids and show that they too can play football.
“I’m trying to change the narrative,” Rapp told ESPN in 2019. “Show that Asians can play and try to inspire young kids.”
