Seattle Seahawks Player Christine Michael Will Take Teen To Prom

It’s every teenage girl’s dream to be crowned homecoming queen in the fall, and to take a hunky football player to prom in the spring. Well, that dream is reality for 18-year-old Taylor Kirkwood.

Taylor has autism, and until surgery a couple years ago, she also had scoliosis. She has a positive outlook through every difficulty, and this grace and perseverance under pressure has already earned her the homecoming crown. Now she’s ending the school year on a high note as well. On April 12, Seattle Seahawks running back Christine Michael will be taking the young lady to prom.

When Taylor was shown Christine’s picture, her eyes lit up — and she’s been practicing her poses for pictures. Watch this video to hear about Taylor’s plans for this very special night.
