Six-year-old Braylon Beam had a day he'll probably never forget Friday after the Make-a-Wish Foundation granted his wish. Braylon, who is undergoing treatment in Charolotte, N.C., for a tumor, became an honorary Carolina Panthers head coach during the team's Fan Fest. 

"He's a real energetic young man who has got a real good sense for being around people. He showed that," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He's got a great fight about him, and I hope our guys got the message and understand who this young man is."

In addition to his coaching honor, a couple of Panthers joined the soon-to-be first-grader for a dance to Silentó's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" after practice.


Braylon, along with the Panthers' Cam Newton, Mike Tolbert, Tre Boston and Kelvin Benjamin, put on their best dance moves, which immediately went viral.

It's hard to tell who enjoyed the dance more—Braylon or his new friends from the Panthers.
