ICYMI: Gamecocks QB Dylan Thompson Is Engaged


ICYMI is a feature at Garnet and Cocky where we touch on a particular story that you we may have missed over the past few days. We’ll look to do it on most Sunday nights or Monday mornings, if not every couple of weeks or so. What other stories did we miss? Hit us up on Facebook and Twitter.

South Carolina Gamecocks quarterback Dylan Thompson had been partaking in a Twitter fast to get himself ready to go for football in a few weeks and to focus on his faith.

He broke that fast–temporarily–to announce some pretty big news.

“Mel” in this case is Melanie Helm, a 2012 graduate of Anderson University and a teacher in the Lancaster County school system.

I’d probably have to say that’s worth tweeting–although I hope Dylan and Melanie’s parents didn’t find out over Twitter, though.

Congrats to the lovely couple, by the way.
