High schoolers across the country are getting ready for the big homecoming dance. And for one student in Louisiana, it has been an emotional roller coaster.

He went from rejected, to accepted, in a big, big way.

The H.L. Bourgeois Braves. Dakota Nelton goes to school here, and he says the school is supposed to stand for bravery, care, and happiness but when Dakota did a scary thing, he was devastated. 

He asked a girl to be his first date ever to the homecoming dance.

“It was actually a pretty tough moment as standing in a small circle with that one shaking head. And you just got to find your way out of that circle. It’s hesitating,” said Dakota Nelton.

It’s a video that is gaining thousands of views on Facebook.

A homecoming proposal gone wrong. The girl saying no. The laughs of dozens of kids looking on, even stepping on his poster he made himself.

“That’s what made me walk away,” said Nelton. “I didn’t want to be a part of it.”

The Monday after the proposal, the extraordinary happened, coming from an unexpecting group in the school.

“Let’s get a group of girls together and ask him to show him that he’s loved and worthy and deserves to be going to homecoming with somebody,” said Alyssa Buckley, student. 

Thirteen girls including cheerleaders held up posters and proposed to Dakota to ask him to go to the homecoming dance.​​​​​​​

“I felt like one of the popular kids in school which,” said Nelton. “I’m really not.”

Dakota can be seen in the sweet video, surrounded by his future dates as they ask him to go to homecoming with them.
