High School Teammate, Friend Engaged ... Did I Mention He is a NFL Quarterback?

Dolphins 2nd round pick Chad Henne has been relaxing back home before he starts his first NFL training camp on July 26th in Miami. A friend of mine spotted him at the Wilson High School gymnasium running sprints (good to know he is working out during his time off). He was also in Leesport, PA on Saturday for an autograph session. It seems as though the night before said session, Chad made a huge life decision; he asked his girlfriend of many years (reported as 7, that sounds about right) to marry him. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel picked up on this. Omar Kelly, in his Dolphins blog, had this to say:

Um, thanks for the life lesson? Anyway, the blue text in the excerpt linked to this article from the Reading Eagle. According to the paper, Chad gave Brittany Hartman a 5.2 carat diamond ring. Damn! This leads me to believe that he will be signing his first multi-million dollar contract with Miami any day now. And that is good news for Dolphin fans.

As most of you know, I played football with Chad through much of my schooling at Wilson and followed his career at Michigan with great interest. Having the Dolphins draft him was quite exciting, since Miami has been my favorite team my entire life. I also was friends with Brittany through high school and it makes me happy to know that they are still together and now engaged. Congratulations, Chad and Brittany!
