Seahawks RB Michael goes to prom with autistic student
APR 15, 2014 2:27p ET
Michael promised last month to go to the prom with an autistic Houston-area high school senior, who also suffers from scoliosis.
And he kept his word for the big night last weekend.
Michael couldn't be more excited when he picked up 18-year-old Taylor Kirkwood to take her to the most memorable event for every high school student.
"I'm just here for Taylor," Michael told KPRC‑TV. "It's a blessing. Like I said, she's a beautiful kid. I'm very proud of her."
Kirkwood's mother's cousin is a close friend of Michael and helped make the dream come true.
"I'm so happy to go dance and have a good time," Kirkwood said.
