'I want to cry'

Ryan Skoranski's dream is to one day play for the Steelers.

On Friday, the 15-year old from Old Forge, Pa., did the next best thing when he attended practice, met the players afterwards, including his favorite Antonio Brown, and had a day he never imagined was possible.

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

Skoranski, who is battling Ewing Sarcoma and is currently going through chemotherapy, was the guest of the Steelers and the Make-A-Wish Foundation at practice on Friday, and will be at Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

"It's amazing. Oh my. I have no words to really say how I feel," said Skoranski. "I love the Steelers. Everything they do I love it. I wanted my family to come with me too. They support me so much, with everything I am going through, they are here for me.

"I want to cry. I feel so special for once. When you are in the hospital for so long, you don't feel special. Today I feel like a million bucks."
