    Default Fox Alabama: Trent Richardson grants Hueytown senior's prom wish

    http://www.myfoxal.com/story/1740340...iors-prom-wish

    On the surface, 17-year old Courtney Alvis looks like your everyday teenager. She's Two days shy of her senior prom and testing a new do at the salon. But getting to this point hasn't been easy, "I have heard of leukemia but I wanted to make sure that was cancer. So I was like are you telling me I have cancer and he was like it could be cancer," she said.


    And it was. At just 16-years old and a junior at Hueytown High School, Courtney's life drastically changed.


    "I couldn't drive. I couldn't go to school or even go to the mall or out to eat because of germs."....


    That's until her uncle who has some Alabama connections spread the word. That word got to Trent Richardson. <rest at link>

    Thats a good story, to say the least. I'd still like to see a quote from Trent on the matter.

    Great story, makes me like him even more.

    I would guess Trent didn't really comment because he wanted it to be about her and not him.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Nice gesture from the best running back prospect to come along since Adrian Peterson. Guy is going to be an absolute beast in the NFL.
