Steelers make a wish come true

Posted by Teresa Varley on October 18, 2013 – 3:08 pm

It’s a special weekend for 18-year old Daniel Fraley from Hermitage, Pa., who attended Steelers practice on Friday through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Fraley’s wish was to meet players and go to a game, which he will do on Sunday when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field.

Fraley got to meet many of the players, including his favorite, linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who spent time talking with him near the end of practice and afterwards.

“He told me what they were doing out there,” said Fraley, who has muscular dystrophy. “It was cool having him come over and talk to me then. He is a good player. He is a good guy.”

Woodley said he was touched that meeting him was part of Fraley’s wish and he had a good time hanging out with him at practice.

“I came over during our last period when I wasn’t in there, spent some time with him while he was watching practice,” said Woodley. “I was telling him what was going on, who was out there on the field. He already knew, though. He knows his stuff.

“It’s a good feeling to do this. You are making an impact on people’s lives.”
