Philadelphia Eagles' Emmanuel Acho surprises Va. teen with prom invite

For lots of teenagers, prom is THE big deal. So when you land a prom date who also happens to be an NFL star, you make a little news.

Just ask Hannah Delmonte. The 16-year-old from Purcellville, Virginia wanted Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho to be her date to prom at Woodgrove High School, so she asked him if he would-- on the condition that she could get 2,000 retweets on the invite.

Acho countered and agreed that he would-- if she could make it 10,000 retweets. She one-upped him and managed to get 15,000. Wow... and mission accomplished!

Acho made good on his promise-- and even flew in from grad school in Texas to surprise her with an Eagles jersey that has #15 and "PROM" on the back. As you might imagine, Delmonte was overwhelmed with excitement.
