Auburn signee Tashawn Manning has been battling cancer since last November, but his tough predicament provided an opportunity to devise a unique prom proposal for his girlfriend.
Manning decided to dress up like a doctor and ask his girlfriend to Wekiva High School’s prom.
“We were sitting there talking about ideas, and I saw an idea about a doctor theme,” Manning told News 13’s Jerry Hume, an Orlando-area news station. “I was in the hospital, so I just put two and two together.”

Manning’s girlfriend, Victoria Green, said yes to the surprise proposal.
Provided he is healthy, the three-star defensive tackle plans to enroll at Auburn for the fall 2017 semester. He signed with the Tigers on National Signing Day, but he did not count toward the team’s 2016 recruiting class. Manning’s eligibility will remain on hold until he is physically able to join the program.
