"The biggest dates aren't always on the schedule," the advertisement read.

Although showcasing a football player, the advertisement was shot outside the school's baseball field.

The ad was launched just as students across the country are preparing for prom. Tigard High School's prom is set for tomorrow, May 16.

Ralph Greene, the vice president for business development at Nike Football, is a volunteer coach at Tigard High, and the apparel giant has had a longstanding relationship with the school as a sponsor.
