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.

Bell then bumped up that wager.

That number quickly reached 600. He then tweeted:

"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.
