Emmanuel Acho's prom date surprise

So, I'm far removed from my high school days. But if my blurred memories and "Saved by the Bell" taught me anything, it's that prom is the most important time in your life.

Okay, so there are some more important events in the following years, but it's crucial at that age. So, you have to make sure you have the right date. And who better than your favorite NFL player?

That's what lucky fan Hannah Delmonte thought when she reached out to Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho. He upped the ante a bit, but here's the interaction.

Not only did she accept the challenge, she squashed it by more than 7,000 retweets. Then this happened.

It's a great moment to watch. Well played, Acho. Now I just wonder what the corsage will look like.
