Pigskin proposal named top love story for 2013 in Armstrong Browning contest
At Pigskin Revue last fall, Baylor senior Courtney Carameros was named a Homecoming Princess — but that’s not why she’ll remember that night forever. Later in the evening, her boyfriend, fellow senior Mitchell Frank, proposed to her on stage between acts; take a look:
The couple had started dating three years earlier, as Baylor freshmen, but that kiss you saw at the end of that video? That was their first kiss, either as individuals or as a couple. “Our goal was to only kiss one person for the rest of our lives,” writes Courtney. Their story won first prize in the Armstrong Browning Library’s annual “How Do You Love Thee?” love story contest.
Second place went to Bobby (BBA ’66) and Jeannie (BBA ’69) Hill, who met at Baylor in 1966, were married 11 months later, and last year celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary. Two of their three kids graduated from Baylor, and a granddaughter is headed to Baylor this fall.
Third place went to Thomas (BS ’09) and Jamie Horton, who took the opposite route; the pair knew each other as friends for almost 10 years before getting married at Armstrong Browning last summer, with longtime Baylor VP for student life (and current East Texas Baptist University president) Dub Oliver, BS ’87, leading the ceremony.
Sic ’em, Baylor couples!
