You might remember the story of Jack Jablonski – the 16-year old Minnesota high school hockey player who was left paralyzed after a hit from behind during a game in 2011.

There have been countless stories detailing Jablonski’s resolve in the few years since the tragic incident that left him without feeling from the chest down, and he’s received all kind of support from notable names in the sports world as well.

The latest comes from ESPN’s Michelle Beadle, who confirmed this week that she’ll be accompanying Jack to his senior prom next month. Just awesome.

Big ups to Beadle for accepting Jack’s offer & big congrats to Jack, who just scored his prom’s coolest date.
