Eagles' Emmanuel Acho surprises girl he said he'd take to prom at school

Tuesday February 24th, 2015

Remember last month, when Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho accepted a Twitter challenge from a girl and wound up agreeing to take her to prom after she got 10,000 retweets?

Not only is Acho going to take her to prom, but also he showed up at her high school on Friday to formally ask her in person, as proper prom etiquette would dictate.

The girl, Hannah Delmonte, had no idea Acho was coming and was naturally overwhelmed.

This story just keeps getting better and better. And the best may be yet to come, as Acho told CSN Philly he plans to play the piano and sing Hannah a song on the night of the prom.
