There were fist pounds, handshakes, high fives, and hellos. But more than anything, there was an outpouring of love in the Steelers locker room for 12-year old Daniel Hutto.

Hutto, who is from Charleston, South Carolina and has sickle cell anemia, was at the team’s practice facility on Tuesday, meeting players and watching practice all thanks to the Steelers and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Hutto and his mother will also be attending the Steelers preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field on Thursday night, but it’s hard to imagine anything will top his experience today.

“I felt so welcomed to the training facility,” said Hutto. “I thought I was going to just be watching practice, but to be brought on the field and talking to them, it’s been so special. This is a once in a lifetime type of thing.”
