But a few guys at Corona Del Mar High School in Orange County, California took it one step further and combined the American tradition of prom with the American tradition of football. They created an "NFL-style Prom Draft" which, yep, is as terrible as it sounds if you remember what high school was like.
This particular high school has reportedly been doing this "for years."
Here's how it works, according to the OC Register: 40 senior guys pull numbers that determine the order in which they get to pick prom dates.
Then, a boy running the now-defunct Twitter account — @Cdmprom_Insider — tweets results of the draft, listing the girls’ names as they were “drafted.”
