Shout out to Don Jones the 27-year-old defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers, who is originally from Lawrence County, Alabama. He said it was a "blessing" to go to the prom Friday night with 18-year-old Lindsey Preston, who has Down syndrome.
Apparently, Jones is a family friend and I think this was such a classy move on his part. I bet he made this girls day no doubt! More on the story here.
Classy move by 49ers DB Don Jones. We need to celebrate this stuff more and the controversies less.https://t.co/i9XhFFaMBw— Rob Saker (@robsaker) April 17, 2018
A special-needs student had a one-of-a-kind prom date when a San Francisco 49ers player returned to his home county in Alabama to take her to the dance. https://t.co/ATTwKoljl4— KPIX 5 (@KPIXtv) April 17, 2018

Cute story here. A good story about an athlete in the off-season. NFL player from Alabama returns home to take special needs girl to her prom. Don Jones II is from Lawrence County and now plays for the 49ers. https://t.co/UAyRdb7pXS pic.twitter.com/HrPK20VWSB— Judd Davis (@BamaJD) April 17, 2018
