Sen'Derrick Marks hasn't racked up many victories during his two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the defensive tackle sure seems like a winner off the field.

On Wednesday, Marks visited Khameyea Jennings, an 18-year-old cancer patient, and surprised her with an invite to prom.

The girl shyly accepted and requested that Marks wear his hair down while rocking a white-and-gold tux. Her smile at the end is the best part of the entire video.

Update from Sunday, April 3

Before their big night, Marks picked up his date in style.
