(WJLA) – Centreville High School served as the backdrop on Thursday for a dramatic lacrosse playoff showdown. But the emotion of this night involved a student who can’t take the field, but remains admired for his determination.
Seventeen-year-old Juwaan Espinal, despite being non-verbal due to cerebral palsy, has a large circle of friends. And one of them did something extraordinary – to make him feel ordinary.
The people hiding behind this banner lured Juwaan to the game for a remarkable surprise. It reads: “I know I’m not as cool as RGIII, but will you go to the prom with me?”
