Taylor Kirkwood, an 18-year old student at Anahuac High School in Texas had one hope for her senior prom – that she’d be able to get Seattle Seahawks running back Christine Michael to attend.
That seemed like a bit of a long shot, but Kirkwood’s mother had a cousin who attended Westbrook Senior High School with Michael and after a few strings were pulled, Kirkwood’s invitation to Michael was accepted.
"Prom season is just around the corner and for one local high school student it will definitely be a night to remember.Taylor Kirkwood, 18, of Anahuac High School, recently found out she’ll be attending the prom with Seattle Seahawks player and former Texas A&M player, Christine Michael.“I was just like we’ll see what happens,” her mother, Stacie Holmes said. “I know he’s busy and I wasn’t sure if he could.”"
A wonderful story, no doubt.
Kirkwood still hasn’t found the perfect dress yet, but she still has a few weeks left as the prom isn’t until April 21st.
