A Christmas wish comes true

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

The Steelers grant the wish of a young fan from Pottstown, PA.

And in Pittsburgh he wears black and gold, a jersey, and a helmet.

On Friday, Santa came in different shapes and sizes, but delivered the same thing to Jacob Haraczak – a world of smiles.

Haraczak, a 13-year old from Pottstown, Pa. who suffers from focal epilepsy, was the guest of the team at practice through Make-A-Wish and will also attend the Steelers-Ravens game on Christmas Day.

And as he said, it's a Christmas wish come true.

"I love sports and they are my favorite team. It's my favorite Christmas gift. It's once in a lifetime. It's incredible. I am really excited for the game."
