Generally speaking, neither the punter nor the long snapper on any given football team are expected to do very much more than punt or long snap come game days. The two players have the type of time together to forge a lasting relationship as friends both on and off the field.

At Mississippi State, punter Brad Swedenburg is taking his relationship with long snapper Winston Chapman one step further: jumping from very close friends and teammates, straight into brotherhood.

You read that correctly, Swedenburg is currently engaged to the sister of his long snapping future brother-in-law, Claire Chapman. The two met when the two families were enjoying a tailgate together in 2011 and Swedenburg actually proposed this past April.

Keeping it in the family, baby.
