Former Utah wide receiver Steve Smith has had an amazing 15-year career in the NFL, but he put football aside last week to take a young girl to prom.

It was a special night for 18-year-old Aubrey Bridges, who was diagnosed with autism at age two. Aubrey also has a rare circulation disorder, a form of an aneurysm, which prevents her from speaking.

Bridges has been accepted to Winthrop University, but before she starts college, she wanted Steve Smith to take her to prom.
