Good News: NFL Quarterback Becomes Prom Matchmaker


Robert Griffin III provided some uplifting PR for the Redskins franchise.  Griffin helped a student invite a classmate to prom.  The quarterback showed up at the school, Centreville High in Virginia, to do the honors in person.  Morgan Assel wanted to ask her classmate Juwaan Espinal, who has cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair and is non-verbal. According to WJLA, Morgan connected with Griffin through Instagram to give her a hand.  At the school’s lacrosse game, Griffin and Morgan approached Juwaan while hidden behind a sign that read:

“I know I’m not as cool as RGIII, but will you go to … ”

Then Griffin and Assel emerged with a smaller sign that completed the question:

“prom with me?”
