Super Bowl Champ Taking Teen with Autism to Prom
Nothing like having an NFL player and Super Bowl champ as a date to make prom a night to remember. Which is what happened to Anahuac High School's Taylor Kirkwood when Seattle Seahawk and Texas A&M grad Christine Michael said he'd take her to her big dance. Mom Stacie Holmes told Houston's KPRC that she wanted to do something special for her 18-year-old daughter, who has autism. Luckily, Holmes had a cousin who attended high school with Michael in Beaumont, Tex. Holmes' cousin, a good friend, was able to relay the message to the now 23-year-old running back, who readily assented. "Are you going to kiss him?" her mother teased. "Yes," Taylor responded immediately.
