Props to Washington Redskins quarterback, Robert Griffin III on this story. He helps Centreville High School Student Morgan Assel invite classmate Juwaan Espinal, who suffers from cerebral palsy to prom.

Espinal is a big fan of RGIII, so being the wonderful guy he is, RGIII helped Assel surprise Espinal with an invitation to their prom. Not forgetting to add some humor to the invitation, the banner read:

I know I’m not as cool as RGIII, but will you go to the prom with me?

The look and reaction from Espinal, who is non-verbal due to his illness, was pure overjoy.

Aw. I just love these stories, especially when there are so many sports figures causing trouble.
