Jack Jablonski, the Benilde-St. Margaret’s student who was paralyzed during a high school hockey game two years ago, took a notable date to prom Saturday night.

Jablonski asked Michelle Beadle, host of ESPN's "SportsNation," to prom during his regular appearance on the “Mike and Bob Show” on Sports Radio 105 The Ticket back in March when Beadle was also on the show.

She said yes, and it all worked out. They snapped the following selfie on their way to prom:

"This is ending high school with a hurrah," Jablonski told KARE 11. "I can't thank Michelle enough for coming tonight."

On Friday, Beadle had dinner with the Jablonskis.

She also participated in the school's grand march and evening of events, KARE 11 says.

As for Beadle, she was a little nervous getting ready for prom.

“I’m happy that the school actually allowed me because I know they’re very, they’ve got some really good rules here. And, so it’ll be fun. I get to go on a school bus. Hello, it’s going to make me young again,” Beadle told WCCO.

"Jack is a just a cool human being," Beadle told KARE 11. "To go through what he's gone through and to keep smiling, it's just a no-brainer that I would want to hang out."

Jablonski will graduate from Benilde Saint Margaret High School next month.

Here are some more tweets from Beadle's trip to Minnesota:
