Two Missouri players accompany a girl with cerebral palsy to prom
Sometimes there is a bit of good news about. Full story & some video at the link.
Few good deeds go unnoticed here at Dr. Saturday and today Missouri receiver T.J. Moe and quarterback Corbin Berkstresser are getting their well-deserved dues.
Last Saturday, the two Tigers accompanied Linda Watson to her senior prom at Fayette High School.
Watson, who suffers from cerebral palsy, loves Missouri football, so her teacher, Bridget Hussey, asked a friend in the Missouri football program if Watson's two favorite players — Moe and Berkstresser — would be interested in making Watson's prom special.
Both immediately agreed to be her dates.
"She loves those two guys and she's going to love them even more tonight," Watson's father, Dave, said.
The two players showed up in khakis and their jerseys and were greeted by the entire town of Fayette as they posed for pictures outside of the school. The three also took an official prom picture and did some dancing.

5. An Auburn player, Philip Lutzenkirchen, did the same thing two years ago.
He took a teammate's little sister (Downs Syndrome) to her first prom. Lutzenkirchen is considered one of the better tight ends in the SEC, a good student, and a very nice person.
