Don Jones of San Francisco 49ers escorts girl with Down syndrome to prom


MOULTON, Ala. — A special-needs scholar had a one-of-a-kind promenade date when an NFL participant returned to his residence county in Alabama to take her to the dance.

Don Jones is a 27-year-old defensive again for the San Francisco 49ers who’s from Lawrence County.

He instructed WBRC-TV (Birmingham) it was a “blessing” to go to the promenade Friday evening with 18-year-old Lindsey Preston, who has Down syndrome.

Jones is a household pal. His mom taught Preston in elementary faculty.
