According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a spokesperson for the Waukesha School District said Le'Veon Bell is too old to attend prom.

Waukesha School District spokeswoman Terry Schuster told the Appleton Post-Crescent that Bell is welcome at other events such as the grand march and photo sessions with Tarantino, but can not attend the dance itself.

Although not allowed at the dance, Bell reportedly told the student he will attend any pre-prom activities she is attending, will bring his family and pose for pictures before she heads off to her High School prom.

But on Wednesday, district leaders released a statement saying that Bell could attend the public events - which include a parade - but not the actual dance because he's older than 19 and they ban "dance guests who have been involved in drug, alcohol of violent criminal incidents". But school rules may stop him from attending.

Jim Tarantino doesn't know the details of Bell's past, but he wonders if Bell speaking to students about overcoming mistakes would be beneficial.

Big fan: Ava Tarantino, of Waukesha, Wisconsin, loves the Pittsburgh Steelers, especially their running back Le'Veon Bell. He challenged her to get 600-retweets of their exchange, and then he'd agree to be her date.

Tarantino was looking for the ideal black and gold dress to wear.

"When the Steelers drafted him in 2013, which is my favorite football team, I was like, 'This is ideal, '" she said.

It's safe to say she won the bet by a landslide.

Bell recently underwent surgery to fix a core muscle that he injured during the Steelers playoff run.

"I have 100 percent faith that my school will let things go and he'll be able to come", said Tarantino.
