The 6-year-old fan and former head coach of the Carolina Panthers will be attending the Super Bowl thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.
Braylon Beam is a first-grader at Rock Springs Elementary in Denver and is currently undergoing treatment for a tumor on his optic nerve.
Ellen called Braylon the Panthers’ good luck charm and was able to provide Braylon and his parents tickets to Super Bowl 50 during her show.
Ellen said Braylon will be on the field before the game starts and during the halftime show as the “Ellen Show” correspondent.
Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina, Beam served as the team’s honorary associate head coach during Fan Fest on Aug. 7 and had his wish granted to be the head coach of the Carolina Panthers for a day.
He has attended several games of the Panthers and even led the “Keep Pounding” drum ceremony.
