When Morgan Assel decided to ask her friend Juwaan Espinal to prom, she got some help from Espinal's favorite football player, Robert Griffin III. RGIII showed up to support Assel's "Promposal" to Espinal, who suffers from cerebral palsy. Assel and the Redskins QB surprised Espinal at a lacrosse game, holding a banner that read, "I know I'm not as cool as RGIII, but will you go to prom with me?"
Best prom date ever thanks to the best athlete ever. Brought tears to my eyes. Thank you SO much. God bless you!❤️ pic.twitter.com/qRtHXrHXfQ
