Joyce Grendel, an 18-year-old girl high school senior from Ohio recently tweeted at NFL cornerback Joe Haden. Grendel’s only request was that the football star take her to the senior prom after her date bailed on her last minute. To Grendel’s surprise, the Cleveland Browns player agreed and picked her up in his white Lamborghini, admitting that he too was nervous about the evening. Manolith has the story:

An 18-year-old from Ohio joined the growing trend of asking a celebrity to the prom-and she got the answer she wanted. She also got the experience of a lifetime, beginning with the moment her date arrived to pick her up.

Joyce Grendel is a senior at Independence High School in Independence, Ohio. She says that her prom date bailed on her at the last minute, so she reached out on Twitter to Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden to ask if he would step up to take her. Somewhat amazingly, Haden responded and said that he would.

Haden never got to attend his own senior prom and he admitted to being nervous about attending this one. “I am nervous, too,” he said. “I feel this is very legit, like I was getting ready, ‘Does this look cool?’ when I’m getting ready. I feel like I’m very legit. This is my prom, too.”
