This is awesome.

Taylor Kirkwood is an 18-year-old student at Anahuac High School in Texas who has autism.

That didn't keep her from winning homecoming queen, however, and now she'll be accompanied to prom by Seattle Seahawks running back Christine Michael.

Michael, who used to play for the Texas A&M Aggies, recently accepted her invitation. You can learn more about Taylor in the video above.
