Don Jones, 27, is a defensive lineman with the San Francisco 49ers. He graduated from Hazelwood High School in Town Creek, Alabama, and returned to his home state just to escort 18-year-old Lindsey Preston to her prom.

"Lindsey always stayed in contact with me and the family," he told WBRC-TV. "Her mother asked me to go to the prom with her last year so I told her I would be more than glad."

Jones not only made her feel special but he danced the night away with ALL the kids.

"Anything I can do to make some kids smile, I would be more than willing to do. I think the most fun was all of the guys, I showed the guys about 5 or 6 new dance moves."
