PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A young fan received a special surprise before Thursday night’s Sixers game.

Marquan Graham-Young, 16, was courtside to see the Sixers warm-up at the Wells Fargo Center.

The teen got to meet his favorite player Ben Simmons and even received a jersey.

Marquan was diagnosed with Becker muscular dystrophy in 2010.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation helped him fulfill his dream of meeting Simmons.

This was also Marquan‘s first time attending a Sixers game.
