ROWLAND HEIGHTS - The first year of Danny Velasquez and Adam Grijalva's friendship wasn't as smooth as it is now.
"We didn't click," said Grijalva, 18.
On Friday, it looked nothing like that. Both danced, donning matching ties Grijalva had bought, and celebrated their years together at the prom of the Best Buddies club at Rowland High School.
