Robert Griffin III has turned into a matchmaker.

Last week, the Washington Redskins quarterback helped a girl ask a boy to prom over the radio. As it turns out, he wasn't done setting people up.

Griffin made a surprise appearance at a playoff lacrosse game at Centreville High School (Clifton, Virginia) on Thursday to pull off his latest promposal. 

Centreville junior Morgan Assel wanted to find a special way to ask her classmate, Juwaan Espinal, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, to prom. Espinal's favorite player is Griffin, so it just made too much sense to try to get the quarterback involved.

Watch as the promposal unfolds:
