Kenny Pickett may be beginning his quest for a Super Bowl ring, but there’s one ring he doesn’t have to worry about anymore.
Pickett proposed to his girlfriend, Amy Paternoster, over the weekend while back home at the Butcher’s Block restaurant near Ocean Township, New Jersey.
“Got tired of calling you my girlfriend…here’s to a lifetime with the person I cherish more than anything in the world,” Pickett captioned his Instagram post over the weekend. “You make me a better person and I could not imagine life without you. I love you more forever and always!!
Paternoster is a soccer player at Princeton, who is graduating this spring. A Wall, N.J native, Paternoster scored three goals and dished five assists for the Tigers this season. However, she’s equally impressive off the pitch.
An economics major and Academic All-Ivy League student-athlete, Paternoster has served as a summer analyst with Goldman Sachs and Ardian Private Equity over the past two summers and studied at the London School of Economics in 2019.
With the two stellar student-athletes at or nearing the end of their college careers, it’ll be a busy path forward as Pickett navigates the NFL Draft and Paternoster enters the economics job force, but a wedding doesn’t appear to be far off.
It just can’t be in April, or at least, it can’t on Thursday, April 28 as the 2022 NFL Draft kicks off.
