CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A wish to be a Carolina Panther for a day...granted by one of the team's biggest stars.

17-year-old Foster Hale donned the number 88 jersey because he wanted to be Greg Olsen for a day.

The two were together at mini camp running routes today, and Hale even caught two passes in practice.

Hale is fighting leukemia, and Olsen had some fun on the gridiron with the Charlotte high schooler.

"I told him if they don't throw you the ball, you start cussing people out. But in front of the cameras you just tell him you can only control what you can control - that's day 1 installe in the NFL," said Olsen.
