Carolina Panthers Make Adorable 6-Year-Old Coach For A Day

"Be brave, be positive, never give up, have a heart, go Cats.”

Get ready for the cutest NFL coach to give you all the feels today.

Six-year-old Braylon Beam, who has a brain tumor, joined the Carolina Panthers on the field as honorary coach on Friday. At the team's FanFest practice at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, they all showed off some pretty great dance moves.

Beam, a noted fan of Cam Newton, even had the quarterback's signature "Superman" move down. The pair shared a moment on the field when the NFL star helped out his new coach with his threads.

The Panthers signed Beam to a one day contract in June as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation program after Beam appeared on Ellen to talk about his #JustKeepDancing campaign. The boy, who started the movement as he endures chemotherapy treatment for a brain tumor, said when he grows up he wants to be head coach for the Panthers.

But it was Friday -- when he helped rally the team in front of a crowd of 55,000 and even held his own press conference -- that Beam called "the best day ever." 

The young boy offered some wise words to the team: "Be brave, be positive, never give up, have a heart, go Cats."

The joy wasn't limited to the football field. Check out the Panthers' video for some locker room antics -- as well as Beam's tip for Newton to "put more strength in the ball" and throw deep.

"He's a special kid," said Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis. "The way he lives his life, the way he loves to just be happy. It's just contagious and when you're around him, you feel that same energy."

Beam thanked the team for his special day, saying, "It was good, and fun and it meant a lot."
