Eagles' Emmanuel Acho surprises girl he said he'd take to prom at school
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.
SURPRISE!! Most heart warming feeling I've had in a while! Sorry for making you cry though @hdelmonte_ SEE YOU AT PROM!! #PromPartII ---- Backstory: Prior to walking around the corner, she was in the principles office being debriefed on what to say to the school board to get approval for my attendance at prom. She turned the corner expecting to go meet with school board representatives.

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.
