Brock used his boots and fancy footwork to make this happen.

“There was a part where I thought, I’ll stop at I love you. But I need her to know it’s for her,” said Brock.

“I put my hand up. I put my head on the window sill, ” said Andrea Riggs.  “I looked at him and back out and said, no one’s ever done this for me. It’s very sweet.”
