Eloy Vargas, Champion Basketball Player, Takes Kentucky Teen To Prom (WATCH)

Proving that sometimes dreams really do come true -- especially on prom night! -- a lucky Kentucky teenager named Natascha Richardson took her dream date, champion basketball player Eloy Vargas, to prom last week.

Natascha told local news outlet WKBO: "It was my turn to get an autograph [from him] and I was just like, 'What are you doing tonight?' And he was like, 'What are you doing tonight?' And I was like, 'You should go to prom with me.' It just kind of happened and I was like, 'Ahh, cool.'"

She and the Kentucky center had dinner together and took photos before the dance. Later in the evening, the two looked adorable dancing together, as Vargas was at least a foot taller than his petite date.

After the event, Vargas tweeted: "Had a great time in Bowling Green meeting everyone & enjoyed going 2 prom w/ @NrXch wish I could've stayed longer & hope she has a good prom."

A few other teens are hoping to be as lucky as Natasha on their prom nights. Michigan high school senior Balraj Singh posted a YouTube video urging model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner to join him on prom night. And four persistant girls from New York have launched an online campaign, "One Direction Prom or Bust," in an attempt to get the British boy band to be their escorts for the big night.

Hey, it could happen. In fact, it's happened before -- celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift have taken their fans to red-carpet events like the Country Music Awards.
