High school girl asks boyfriend to prom with help from Jets

NEW YORK (AP) This was one touchdown of a promposal - with the help of the New York Jets.

Sarah Kardonsky of Division Avenue High School in Levittown, New York, asked a friend, Michael Pagano, to prom with a video proposal that featured some special guests. Several Jets players, including cornerback Antonio Cromartie and running back Bilal Powell, are in the 30-second video individually asking Pagano if he'll go to prom with Kardonsky.

Wide receiver Chris Owusu even leans into the camera and whispers some advice: ''Say yes!''

Kardonsky, who posted the video on her Facebook page, presented the Jets-filled proposal to Pagano - wearing a No. 24 Darrelle Revis jersey - in class to cheers from other classmates.

And, of course: Pagano said yes.

Kardonsky says Pagano initially asked her to the prom, but she already had a date - another friend. She felt bad and knew the other guy would have no issues finding another date, so she asked if he'd be OK with her taking Pagano instead.

And she wanted to do something special to ask.

She says she then reached out to the players through Instagram and edited their videos together.
