WAUKESHA -- A Waukesha West High School junior may live her dream: going to prom with Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell.
All signs point to Ava Tarantino in Waukesha going to prom with the NFL player. It all started with this tweet last week by Tarantino, to Bell.
@L_Bell26 500 rts and you'll go to prom w me
— Ava Tarantino (@avatarantino26) March 11, 2017
Bell then bumped up that wager.
600 & it's a deal https://t.co/nUo76cmH8e
— Le'Veon Bell (@L_Bell26) March 11, 2017
That number quickly reached 600. He then tweeted:
welllll, a deal is a deal @avatarantino26 ......see youu at your prom ?

"This story proves the power of social media is crazy and like there's so many positive things that can come out of it," Tarantino said.
We reached out to Bell's agent for comment. We learned he just had surgery Sunday and is now recovering.
Ava is searching for a black and yellow dress in time for prom on May 13.
