Aly Raisman became a household name during this summer’s Olympic Games, and she caught the eye of one NFL player.

Colton Underwood, a 24-year-old tight end for the Oakland Raiders, sent Raisman, 22, a congratulatory video through Yahoo! Sports this week. At the end, he slipped in an invitation for a date if Raisman is ever in San Jose. 

Raisman said yes, she’d double-date with Andrew East and 2008 gold medalist Shawn Johnson.

The two exchanged notes on Twitter:

As it turns out, Raisman and the other four American gymnasts from Rio will be in San Jose on Sept. 18. So, there ya go. It’s a date.
