This week, we brought to your attention the story of Chicago Bears rookie linebacker J.T. Thomas, who escorted a wheelchair-bound girl to her eighth-grade dance last Friday. Thomas and his date, Joslyn Levell, appeared Wednesday morning on ESPN's "First Take" to tell the story.

Thomas said he wanted to make sure that Levell, who has spina bifida, "felt really special" on her big night. Levell and Thomas' seven-year-old brother, who is autistic, ride the same school bus. The driver helped connect Levell, who is a Bears fan, with Thomas, a sixth-round pick in last month's draft.
