Oklahoma linemen make prom memorable for girl
MAY 12, 2013 7:47p ET
If the Oklahoma Sooners were looking to build a little good karma for the upcoming football season, a trio of offensive linemen has done a job that can't be matched.
According to The Oklahoman, the three players showed up at The Children's Center in Bethany, Okla., to surprise Hayle Savage, who has spina bifida and is in a wheelchair. Savage has been at the center because of a leg infection and the sophomore will miss her regular high school prom.
But thanks to the Sooners, Savage has a memory that can't be matched.
The center held a prom of its own and when Savage entered, lineman Bronson Irwin was there as her date. Irwin has volunteered at the center in the past. If that wasn't enough for the Sooner fan, linemen Gabe Ikard and John-Philip Hughes joined in the fun and showed Savage how to do "The Twist."
If that wasn't enough of a memory for Savage, she was also named the prom queen.
"It's cool because it's my first prom, and I got chosen as queen," Savage told the paper. "It doesn't get much better."
