 ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Mikey Henderson made this ``Senior Day'' really special.
Georgia's receiver-kick returner proposed to his girlfriend on the field at Sanford Stadium during a ceremony honoring Henderson and the other seniors Saturday, just before the kickoff of the season's final home game against Kentucky.
Christina Daskalakis, who has been dating Henderson for about 18 months, was clearly caught off guard by the proposal.
``The first words out of her mouth were, 'What are you doing?''' Henderson said after the Bulldogs' 24-13 victory. ``I was like, 'Don't worry about it.'''
Then, he popped the question. She said yes.
Henderson said he wanted to do something special for his girlfriend-now-fiancee, who graduated from Georgia in May.
``She bleeds red and black just as much as I do,'' he said. ``If she could be in my body and out there playing, she would. She loves Georgia as much as anyone else.''
Henderson was inspired by Boise State running back Ian Johnson, who proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend after last season's Fiesta Bowl. The Georgia player figured senior day would be his best chance, because his girlfriend would be on the field with Henderson's family.
``This was my senior day. I wanted it to be our senior day,'' he said. ``I wanted this to be just as much her moment as it was my moment.''
Coach Mark Richt was standing next to Henderson when he proposed.
``That was a neat moment,'' Richt said. ``Mikey's had some good moments this year. He's milked everything he can out of that 152-pound body.''
Henderson had some time to plan his wedding on the sideline. He didn't return after leaving the game late in the first half with a left leg contusion, though it was more a precautionary move. He expects to play in next week's regular-season finale against Georgia Tech.
