COLLEGE STATION

A Texas A&M student named Anne-Marie needs y’all’s help.

On Tuesday, she slid into the DM’s of @MylesLGarrett with the following, then publicized the exchange with a tweet:

Y'all help me take @MylesLGarrett to Semiformal!! REWTEET!!! pic.twitter.com/rE21judHhh

Help a sister out. All it takes is a retweet. Actually about 17,000 more of them at the time of this writing Wednesday.

Anne-Marie had gathered 8,000 retweets by Wednesday at noon, with 24 hours left to nab the 17,000 more she needs in order for Garrett, the presumptive No. 1 pick in next week’s NFL Draft, to accompany her to her sorority’s semiformal event. The agreement was originally 100,000 retweets, before Garrett willingly adjusted the agreed-upon total.

.@MylesLGarrett Update Myles said 25k by 12 tomorrow so let's get it everyone!!!!

That’s still a steep hill to climb, but the Aggies have made comebacks before. Even in football.

According to the student’s Twitter profile, she belongs to Kappa Theta Beta, which is a Catholic sorority run through Catholic campus ministry at Texas A&M.
