An Ohio teen definitely has bragging rights after scoring a prom date with an NFL player.

Joyce Grendel, 18, took Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden to the prom.

Going out with an athlete has its perks. Haden said everyone does the limo, so he picked up Joyce in his Lamborghini.

Joyce asked Haden out on Twitter.

"It just said, 'Hey Joe, would you consider going to my senior prom with me because my date backed out and didn't go.' This is bigger than I ever imagined," she said.

The 23-year-old Haden says he never got to attend his senior prom because he graduated early.

Joyce had met Haden before the prom; she follows him on Twitter and shows up at his appearances and autograph signings.
