Clear eyes, full hearts indeed.

Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford is set to wed his longtime girlfriend, The Glades' Kiele Sanchez, as first reported by US Weekly.

The former star of ABC's short-lived doctors-without-borders medical drama Off the Map recently proposed to Sanchez, whom he met in Chicago while they were filming the TV pilot The Matadors in spring 2010.

Sanchez stars on A&E's The Glades, which was picked up for a third season in October.

Gilford, who played lovable quarterback Matt Saracen on the critically praised and Emmy-nominated NBC/DirecTV drama Friday Night Lights, next has the feature Answers to Nothing with Dane Cook and Elizabeth Mitchell due in theaters Friday.
