CLEVELAND -- An 18-year-old high school senior will remember her prom forever. That's because she had a dream prom date. Cleveland Brown's player Joe Haden escorted Joyce Grendel to prom. She asked the cornerback to take her to prom on Twitter.

"It just said, 'hey Joe, would you consider going to my senior prom with me because my date backed out and didn't go," Grendel said.

He answered with a 'yes' a few hours later. Haden says it was a no brainer for him.

"I was like, 'I haven't been so I'll take you,'" he said.

The 23-year-old Haden never went to his senior prom because he graduated early. Instead of a traditional limo, he should up in a Lamborghini. The NFL player says he even had a few pre-prom jitters.

"I am nervous too. We were taking pictures with me and her family," he said. "I feel this is very legit, like I was getting ready, 'does this look cool?' when I'm getting ready. I feel like I'm very legit, this is my prom too,"

Haden knew Grendel because she Tweets him a lot. She has attended some of his autograph signings as well. Her dad said this is one date he approved of.

"We met him last year, as a matter of fact the kids went bowling with him downtown... you couldn't find a nicer guy. I talked to him a little bit there. He's not different from any of us, he's just a quality guy," said Dave Grendel, Joyce's dad.
