These days, it isn't enough to simply ask, "Will you go to prom with me?" High schoolers treat the big question as if it were a marriage proposal. Recently, Steelers fan Michael Day of Kettering Fairmont High School in Ohio arranged for Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown to help him ask his girlfriend, Marissa, to prom. Michael comes from a long line of Steelers fans. His Uncle Lou Bouris is a made boss for Steel City Mafia and Michael has been an active fan club member since he was 10 years old.

Antonio Brown was happy to oblige, photographing himself with the promposal sign while he was on the Steelers cruise. Michael showed Marissa the picture, asking her if she would be his "catch" for prom (since Antonio Brown catches footballs). She said, "yes." The couple will attend prom on April 23.

While Michael and Marissa prepare for prom, Antonio Brown is excited about competing on Dancing with the Stars.
