Make-A-Wish helps 8 year old becomes NFL Coach for a day

  • Published in Sports

Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers asked for his coaches autograph after practice on August 6th.  Coach Jack Bolton got the chance to be the Carolina Panthers honorary coach for the day.  I forgot to mention…Coach Jack Bolton is only 8-years-old! 


Jack Bolton has spinal muscular atrophy, but that’s never deterred him from having the dream to be an NFL coach.  On this day, through the Make-A-Wish foundation, Coach Jack finally got his opportunity to be on the sidelines of an NFL team. 



Steve Smith, the Panthers wide receiver even went over to the 8-year-old coach and asked him if he could get the quarterbacks to throw more passes his way!   The star coach even had a touching speech that he read to the team before practice started.  He let the team know that he’d be “looking for mistakes when I’m on the field watching you guys”! 


Hopefully the Panthers listen to Coach Bolton’s advice and use it towards winning some games this year!



Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,
