The Seattle Seahawks helped make a Puyallup boy's dream come true on Saturday.

The 14-year-old named Bubba got to meet his favorite football player, Richard Sherman.
    
For the past two years, Bubba has been battling a rare bone disease and hasn't been able to play the sport he loves - football.
   
But Bubba says Sherman is his role model and he's helped him stay positive during his illness.

“It was my motivation to keep working hard... he's just my inspiration to do my best and never give up,” he said.

“Thank you. I appreciate that it means a lot man,” Sherman said.

Bubba didn't only meet his favorite cornerback, many Seahawk players went out of their way to give him a hug.
