Mike Ramirez, 17, has had his dream come true after a Texans cheerleader agreed to go to his senior prom with him.
Mike, a senior at Crosby High School, reached out to Caitlyn, 20, on Twitter and asked if she would go to prom with him if he could get 10,000 re-tweets. “I was talking to my friend Colton about prom and I just said, ‘Man, what if I asked a Texans cheerleader to prom,’ so I did,” Ramirez explained. “So I sent her a message and she replied like instantly and said she’d do it.”
Mike did not expect her to respond, and really did not expect her to agree. “Honestly, I didn’t think she’d respond,” he said. “But, you don’t hit unless you swing.”
He sent the original tweet on February 26 that read: ”10,000 Retweets and I’ll be taking a texans cheerleader to prom.” A few short hours later, he had already reached over 2,000 re-tweets, and in less that 24 hours, he had reached his goal with a little help from Nick Wright and John Lopez of SportsRadio 610.

“I’m so excited,” Mike said. “My buddies are excited for me too. They said I have to do it big, so that’s what I’m going to do.”
Cosby High School’s prom is set to take place on May 10 at the Museum of Natural Science in Houston. Mike has not worked out all of the details of the night, but he says he will be taking Caitlyn out for sushi, her favorite food, and they will be riding in style in a complimentary Hummer limo.
