As sure as queens need kings, so does his muse need an escort.

And looking into the mirror shows him who the right person could be.

With the proper suit, a little waxing of the hair, and two fingers on each side of the lips to force a smile, the school’s most celebrated quarterback in years can really pull off a rather convincing prince-charming act.

His sister won’t be attending prom this year, but he did so well covering up the self-inflicted rope mark around her neck for this shot.

The least a dead jock could do is to cooperate.
