For Casey Carroll, Dreams Do Come True

From the Marietta Daily Journal, "Dreams do come true."

You'll love this. Talk about the Auburn Family ... this is the best representation of the Auburn spirit we've seen recently.

Come live the sweet story of Auburn football players Philip Lutzenkirchen and Kevin Carroll reaching out to Kevin's lovely sister Casey.

Casey "was born with Down Syndrome." She doubted the prom would be a reality in her future. That's when her best friends stepped in. "Philip Lutzenkirchen, a former Lassiter and current Auburn football star, told Casey Carroll he would take her to her prom last father's day, as the Lutzenkirchen and Carroll families celebrated the holiday together."

Kevin is thrilled for his sister. He joined them for the evening's prom, too.

"She's my girl," Casey Carroll's brother, Kevin Carroll, said as he stood near his sister, dressed in his tuxedo. Kevin Carroll is a junior offensive lineman at Auburn University, and has always had a close relationship with his little sister, even giving up his free afternoons as a Lassiter student to sit with her at lunch. "I can honestly say knowing her has made me a better person. She's waited so long for this, I'm just really happy for her."

Kevin Carroll would have taken his sister to her prom, without any hesitation. No need, though, as she had a date most Lassiter girls would have loved to have. Philip Lutzenkirchen, a former Lassiter and current Auburn football star, told Casey Carroll he would take her to her prom last father's day, as the Lutzenkirchen and Carroll families celebrated the holiday together. The two families have been close ever since Kevin Carroll and Lutzenkirchen became friends as Lassiter football teammates.
