This is the moment a high school football star got down on one knee to surprise a 19-year-old fellow student, who was born with a genetic growth disorder, with a promposal.

Autumn Pollard, a Corning High student in Arkansas, US, said yes to Cope Robinson - a sophomore footballer.

“They turned me towards the words and here's Cope walking to me with purple flowers, my favorite color,” Pollard told KAIT8.

Pollard was born with Noonan syndrome, meaning she's only 4ft tall and weighs just 57lbs.

The teen, who loves to shop, told ABC News she's most looking forward to finding the perfect prom dress and "hanging out with Cope".
