Don Jones is a 27-year-old defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers who is from Lawrence County, Alabama.  He traveled back to his home town and took Lindsay Preston, whom has down syndrome, to prom.  The Prestons and Jones are family friends.  Jones' mother actually taught Lindsay in elementary school.  He told WBRC-TV (Birmingham) it was a "blessing'' to go to the prom Friday night with 18-year-old Lindsey Preston.  Preston's mother told sources that he danced with everyone and made all the students feel special! Good on you Don Jones!

Make sure to swipe through all the photos in the IG post below, the video is adorable! 

I had a great time with my beautiful prom date Lindsey at the Lawrence County LCDC prom. It was really an honor being around so many loving faces. I’ll remember this for the rest of my life.
