DENVER, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers made a wish come true Tuesday for a little boy fighting cancer.
Members of the team visited Rock Springs Elementary School in Denver shortly before 10 a.m. to surprise 6-year-old Braylon Beam with a pep rally and 1-day contract to become the Panthers’ head coach.
Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina, Beam will serve as the team’s honorary associate head coach during Fan Fest on Aug. 7 and will have his wish granted to “be the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers.”
Panthers President Danny Morrison was on-hand to present Beam with his contract and signing bonus and TopCats cheerleaders, members of the PurrCussion Drumline, and the team’s official game day DJ were also on-site to share in the excitement of the new hiring.
Ink to paper! The deal is official!
