CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The 95-year-old “Dabbing Granny” made an appearance on the field during game day of the Carolina Panthers’ 38-0 victory against Atlanta, according to WCNC.

Mary Ward became something of an internet celebrity after a photo of her “dabbing” in a Panthers’ jersey recently spread across social media.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton often bursts out in a “dab” dance after scoring a touchdown. It’s a type of dance that originated in Atlanta.

Ward rolled into the stadium on her wheelchair where she shook a police officer’s hand and then met with Panthers owner Jerry Richardson in the tunnel.

“I can’t comprehend it all,” Ward said after arriving to the field. “It’s wonderful. It’s just awesome.”

Ward continued, saying, “I never dreamed of it … I never dreamed of being in a place like this.”

The Panthers are now 13-0 for the first time in franchise history and are first in the NFC South. They face the New York Giants at 1 p.m. Sunday on FOX.
