Redskins Quarterback Helps Girl Ask Special Student to Prom

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Redskins Quarterback RGIII surprises a boy with cerebral palsy. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Morgan Assel is a student at Centreville High School in Virginia.

She wanted to ask her friend, seventeen-year-old Juwaan Espinal, to prom.

But Assel wanted to make the experience extra special for Espinal, who is non-verbal due to cerebral palsy.

The girl recruited Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, known as RGIII, to come to the school and meet Espinal and pop the question.

"I'm just really excited and really grateful that RGIII came to help Juwaan," Assel said.

"It just really means a lot that people are willing to do this for him because he is such a special person and he really deserves it.”
