Philadelphia Eagles Emmanuel Acho to Go to Prom After Twitter Challenge


Suit up because it's almost prom season for Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho.

Acho, who was asked to prom by a fan via a direct message on Instagram, is keeping true to his word after he challenged the high schooler to a little Twitter challenge.

The fan asked Acho if he would escort her to prom if she got 2,000 retweets. Acho responded with an offer, if she got 10,000 retweets in a week, he would be her date, according to a screenshot posted on Instagram.

A few hours and more than 13,000 retweets later, Acho was eating his words.
