PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WTXF) - One lucky Philadelphia Eagles fan got a chance for some sideline shenanigans on Sunday.
It was a belated birthday gift from the team after FOX 29 contacted the high flying birds to put in the good word.
Nick McGee turned 20 years old on September 24. He and his mother spent that morning on Good Day Philadelphia discussing life with Down syndrome.
That morning, Nick mentioned his favorite player was second-season quarterback Carson Wentz.
After Lauren Johnson made a few phone calls, Nick was invited to join the team on the sidelines before Sunday’s matchup against the Chicago Bears.

Nick’s dance moves caught the attention of New Jersey native Corey Clement, who joined Nick on the sidelines to get in on the fun. He even promised to perform Nick’s dance if he scored.
Prior to the game, Nick also hyped up fans in the tunnel singing the Eagles fight song.
The Eagles also gifted Nick and his family four tickets to enjoy the game after all the fun on the sideline.
The family tells FOX 29 it remains forever grateful to its hometown team.
