Few good deeds go unnoticed here at Dr. Saturday and today Missouri receiver T.J. Moe and quarterback Corbin Berkstresser are getting their well-deserved dues.

Last Saturday, the two Tigers accompanied Linda Watson to her senior prom at Fayette High School.

Watson, who suffers from cerebral palsy, loves Missouri football, so her teacher, Bridget Hussey, asked a friend in the Missouri football program if Watson's two favorite players — Moe and Berkstresser — would be interested in making Watson's prom special.

Both immediately agreed to be her dates.

"She loves those two guys and she's going to love them even more tonight," Watson's father, Dave, said.

The two players showed up in khakis and their jerseys and were greeted by the entire town of Fayette as they posed for pictures outside of the school. The three also took an official prom picture and did some dancing.

"It's just a dream come true; it is," Dave Watson said. "Like I was saying, this is like bringing a kid to like six trips to Disneyland. She is that big of a fan. She just loves them.

"This is her first and last prom. I'm just so happy for her. It's just wonderful."

This is a great story. It's nice to see these two players take time out of their weekend to do something this special. It was truly a night Linda Watson will remember for the rest of her life.
