NFL


MOULTON, Ala. — A special-needs student had a one-of-a-kind prom date when an NFL player returned to his home county in Alabama to take her to the dance.

Don Jones is a 27-year-old defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers who is from Lawrence County.

He told WBRC-TV (Birmingham) it was a “blessing” to go to the prom Friday night with 18-year-old Lindsey Preston, who has Down syndrome.

Jones is a family friend. His mother taught Preston in elementary school.

Preston’s mother, Kristi Martin, told The Associated Press that Jones danced with all the students and “made everybody feel special.”

Jones played at Arkansas State before going pro. He has played for the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
