Everyone in the area knows the name Devon Krueger. He’s the knowledge base of sports analytics for nearly every high school sports team in rural Southeast Minnesota. Devon is like our own much younger local Chris Berman (ESPN announcer -- for those who don’t know).

When you meet Devon, with his energetic radio voice, you can tell he’s an extrovert. And, what makes it even more interesting is that when it has come to the dating scene, he’s a little bit quieter.

How they met

In March of 2012, Devon Krueger was covering the Rushford-Peterson High School boys basketball team on another of many historic playoff games on KFIL Radio. Allie Thompson was present at the game, showing support for her two brothers, Nick and Seth, players on the R-P varsity team.

Devon and Allie happened to be staying in the same hotel, along with all of the families that were showing their support for the R-P boys basketball team. That evening, the R-P fans were celebrating their victory in the pool area of the hotel. During that celebration was the first time Devon and Allie met.

They didn’t talk again until February of 2013, almost one year later, when the playoff games started for Rushford-Peterson High School. Allie shared, “He finally ended up with enough courage to talk to me and eventually asked me out. Our first date was March 29, 2013. He took me to dinner and a rock concert in La Crosse, Wis.”

Since then, their lives have grown together and they complement each other quite well. Allie, age 24, is the oldest of seven children, and Devon, age 35, is the youngest of two children. “I have always acted more mature for my age, and Devon is a big kid. It balances out! Also, Devon is very extrovert and I’m very introvert. They always say opposites attract!”

The proposal

At the end of March of 2015, Devon and Allie took a week-long vacation to Manhattan, N.Y. Allie said, “Devon had recalled me saying that I had always wanted to go on a horse drawn carriage in Central Park. I had planned it out that our last day in Manhattan was going to be in Central Park. When we arrived at Central Park on April 1, 2015, Devon suggested a carriage ride. Devon, ring in pocket, had already planned the entire proposal to take place during the carriage ride. And then, we saw the price and I shot that idea down.”

They were then informed of a castle located .....
