So I’m working on our newspaper announcement and I have a question.
Fiance played football in college and I would like to find a way to say that in our newspaper announcement without saying “FI earned his ….. from …. where he played football.” That just sounds so…. blah to me. I don’t expect it to read like some dazzling sports write up but I’d like to give him some much deserved credit and not undercut his accomplishments.
Any suggestions?? Thanks ahead of time!

I think how you have it would be the easiest way. OR “(Groom) was awarded a degree in ___ at (school) and was also active in their football program.”
I don’t really know why you need to highlight his athletic accomplishments in your engagement announcement, though.

Our newspaper doesn’t just do a “Mrs. Bee daughter of _______ and Mr. Bee son of _____ are announcing their engagement. A July wedding is planned.” like some papers do. Our paper does a very large write-up about each of the couples with their backgrounds. So I want it to sound nice. Plus, football is a big deal here. So yes, I want to include something about his football career aside from “he played football.” As I said, I don’t want it to read as a sports write up, but I’d like for it to emphasize the fact that he started and had an excellent career. I’m just looking for ONE eloquently written sentence. I’ll figure it out though. Thanks for your suggestion.
