Murray State asst coach officiates player's post-practice wedding

MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State has tweeted a video that shows Racers defensive lineman Bishop Woods and girlfriend Caitlin Myers being married in a rainy ceremony officiated by offensive line coach Brian Hamilton.

The ceremony took place after Tuesday’s practice at midfield with head coach Mitch Stewart holding an umbrella over Myers. Woods, a senior, was dressed in Murray State’s gold and navy practice uniform. Hamilton, ordained by the Universal Life Church to officiate weddings, mixed unconventional humor with traditional vows that included loving each other in sickness and health, “even if the sickness is caused by trendy cocktails.”

Myers and Woods, who received their official marriage certificate in Calloway County on Wednesday, kissed to cheers from Woods’ Racers teammates. The couple dated for 3 1/2 years and has a four-month-old son, Benjamin.
