Trent Richardson, due to his unique combination of insane speed and strength, will be one of the top picks in the upcoming NFL draft. In addition to being a truly incredible athlete he appears to be one hell of a guy off the field as well.
Richardson took a 17-year-old cancer survivor to her high school prom:
WBRC-TV reports that Richardson and Courtney Alvis arrived Saturday night at Boutwell Auditorium for Hueytown High School’s prom.
He was sporting a white tuxedo while she was wearing a red dress.
Richardson agreed to attend the dance with Alvis after her uncle contacted some of his friends at Alabama. He didn’t go to his own senior prom, but he said he wanted to attend Alvis’ dance because his own mother is a cancer survivor.
He says: “I did it out of my heart. I’m lucky to be here with Courtney.”
Alvis was diagnosed with leukemia last year and is now undergoing chemotherapy treatments.
What a stand up dude.
