A Pittsburgh Steelers fan in Packers country is making headlines as she makes her favorite team's star running back her Waukesha West High School prom date.
Ava Tarantino and Le’Veon Bell were Twitter buddies after meeting in 2014, and it was a twitter dare that made the date happen.

There has been a little controversy along the way that's going to limit Bell's involvement in the big night.
“Right now, my school is talking about how he can only come to the Grand March, but it’s still not official. He’s still in talks with other principals around the school district.”
In the meantime, Bell is set to make an appearance at the May 13 prom, along with his girlfriend and mom.
As for Ava, she’s getting her custom-made black and yellow dress ready to go.
