  • Celebrity Promposal: Eagles Emmanuel Acho Takes Fan To Prom

    Celebrity promposals have become quite the trend lately, and we have a new one to share with you! This past January, Instagram and Twitter user Hannah Delmonte had a unique promposal for Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho. She asked Acho to maker her "the happiest girl alive" by taking her to prom. She did so by proposing that he take her up on her request if she were able to get 2,000 retweets. Acho countered her promposal, saying that 10,000 retweets would be the magic number. Well, Hannah's obviously a very determined young girl and she did not let a mere 8,000 more retweets get in her way!

    In case you couldn't tell from the photos, Hannah did it! Not only did she get 10,000 retweets, she made it to over 13,000! So, Emmanuel said "YES" to Hannah's promposal, went tux shopping, and surprised his fan at her high school with a custom Eagles jersey as a prom present. The jersey had the number 15 on it, "PROM" written on the back, and was signed by Emmanuel with a special note. So cute!

    The Eagles linebacker definitely made Hannah's perfect prom night (and day) come true! We definitely think this Emmanuel Acho promposal is one for the books. It's always so impressive to see celebrities taking time (and money) out of their busy schedules to go to prom with some of their most die hard fans. Even with how popular celebrity promposals have become, it still surprises us every time we hear about one. Acho has proven to be yet another celebrity we're adding to our all-time favorite list of celebs here at Rissy Roo's! If you could take any celebrity to prom, who would you take?

  • This Homecoming Queen is also her School's Football Kicker

    South Jones High School senior Mary Kate Smith is one busy girl. This Fall brings on her Homecoming Dance, where she's the reigning homecoming queen, dedication to her Mississippi school's soccer team, oh and one more thing... the new kicker for her school's varsity football squad!

    Mary Kate Smith is Homecoming Queen and the kicker on her school's football team

    Already a star on her school's soccer team, she's bringing her golden foot to a new team - she's the first girl to make the school's varsity football squad. Her response if someone tells her she plays like a girl? Here's what she told TODAY.com:

    "I'm me, and I'm not trying to be anybody else. I'll take that as a compliment."

    TODAY.com got the whole scoop on this talented girl who proudly wears two things on her head: a homecoming crown, and a football helmet. TODAY.com explained that her football coach, Corey Reynolds, said one of his assistants, Matt Smith, the strength and conditioning coach for Mary Kate's soccer team, suggested Mary Kate be the kicker that'd sought all summer long. Corey explained, "It just turned out to be a blue-eyed, homecoming-queen soccer player."

    Corey said he was amazed at the way Mary Kate could kick a 40-yard field goal in practice, calling her "one of the most highly competitive athletes - male or female - I've ever seen."

    Mary Kate said field-goal kicks are in theory easier than kicking a soccer goal because the ball is stationary in football, but "the pressure is 10 times worse [in football], with big guys running at you who outweigh you by 200 pounds."

    Sounds pretty scary to us, that's for sure!

    Of course, Mary Kate's parents are so proud of her! Her dad said, "Here, in the South, where traditional values are very traditional, we were a little concerned about how well she'd be accepted. We've been pleasantly surprised by the support that the community has shown her. We've got a renewed faith that things are equalized for her, and for girls like her." Check out her friends cheering her on, all wearing "We <3 Mary Kate Smith" shirts!

    Mary Kate's got a lot to be looking forward to when she graduates from high school and moves onto college. She's planning on playing Division-I soccer next fall at the University of Souther Mississippi and considering a career as an orthodontist. Good luck as South Jones High School's Homecoming Queen Football Kicker!
