Christine Michael taking girl with autism to prom

Running back Christine Michael is making one teenager's prom a moment she'll never forget.

Prom is a special time for every teenager but it will be especially memorable for 18-year-old Taylor Kirkwood who will be accompanied by Christine Michael, running back for the Seattle Seahawks.

Kirkwood has autism and her mother was unsure if the former Texas A&M running back had the time to return to his home state for the event, but Michael is taking a break from a busy preseason schedule to be her daughter's date.

Anahuac High School voted Taylor as their homecoming queen, now she'll have the best date at the dance -- and one with a Super Bowl ring.
