LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Heisman Trophy winner. NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Pro Bowler. Now, you can add prom-posal extraordinaire to Robert Griffin III’s resume.
The Redskins star quarterback joined Grant & Danny on Friday to help Lexi, a student at St. John’s Catholic High School in Chevy Chase, ask her friend Jack to their high school prom.
“He’s adorable,” Lexi told Grant & Danny when asked why she wanted to go with Jack to the big dance. The only problem, Lexi said, was she didn’t have the courage to ask him herself.
So 106.7 The Fan and RGIII stepped up to help Lexi’s prom dream come true.
Griffin joined Lexi on Friday’s show and reminisced about his high school prom, admitting that he was nervous, too.
“It was an enjoyable experience, so I hope Lexi has a good time,” said Griffin, who added that his prom was a homecoming of sorts since he graduated high school a semester early to enroll at Baylor.
Lexi, clearly starstruck by having Washington’s most popular football player on the phone line with her, offered no strategy or special requests for the big question.
“You go ahead and do your thing,” Lexi told Griffin. “…straight up ask him.”
Moments later, Jack joined the line with little clue as to what was going on. He quickly found out.
“Alright, Jack. This is Robert Griffin III, in case you were wondering,” RGIII smoothly introduced himself. “My friend Lexi, she’s a great girl, but she was a little shy. She wanted to ask you to prom, man. So, here I am as her personal prom-asker — Will you go to prom with her, man?”
Jack didn’t hesitate.
“Lexi, I would love to be your date to prom,” he answered.
Griffin offered up a few prom night tips — from dancing to dinner — and not surprisingly dished out some advice on his favorite fashion accessory.
“If [Jack]’s going to wear an all black tuxedo … you have to fire it up with the socks,” Griffin said.
“Alright, will do,” Jack assured.
RGIII sent Lexi and Jack off with well wishes — and one final warning.
“Lexi will call me if anything goes wrong,” Griffin jokingly told Jack.
