NFL Player Gives Teen With Autism The Prom Night Of Her Dreams

Taylor Kirkwood, 18, had the night of her life last Saturday when a Superbowl champion took her to prom.

Kirkwood is autistic, and also had scoliosis until she had corrective surgery for it a few years ago. Autism has left her with limited speech, but her high school classmates nominated her for Homecoming Queen earlier this year because of her perseverance.
