“This is my night”
Most young adults spend their Friday nights catching up with their friends trying to find the latest turn up, but former Texas Tech Linebacker Cqulin Hubert spent his “Night To Shine” at a prom party for special needs children sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.
Hubert was invited to attend the prom night and asked one of his students to accompany him for a special night out. The former athlete sponsored Gentry’s prom dress and shoes through Natalie Regimen Craig’s non-profit organization “Walk In Their Shoes” , and while fitting for her dress Gentry told her supporters “This is my night”. Gentry had never ridden in a limousine before, nor has she walked the red carpet, but from the expression on her face you can tell she was elated. Upon arrival, Hubert stepped out of the limo and knelt down on one knee asking for Gentry’s hand to spend her around in front of everyone and the crowd went wild. “Gentry enjoyed it so much she spent around another 5 more times,” said Hubert.
Cqulin Hubert is a remarkable young man with a big heart whose also a part of the Walk In Their Shoes Organization in Lubbock, Texas.
