Wish kid Michael serves as the honorary captain at the Army football game

West Point Honorary Captain - Week 1 - Michael
Michael, a 17-year-old from Ulster county served as the first Make-A-Wish® honorary captain for the season when the Army Black Knights faced off versus Buffalo. Read more...

Michael and his family were greeted and escorted by veteran volunteer Carla Nappi who showed them around Michie Stadium.

As part of the day, Michael participated in the coin toss and chatted with several ARMY football players. He also had the opportunity to hang out on the sidelines with the referees as he waited to be introduced as "Honorary Team Captain" for the day.

Despite the heat and humidity on Saturday, Michael had a great time watching Army beat Buffalo 47-39 at Michie Stadium.

Special thanks to West Point for providing these amazing experiences for our wish kids and to Carla for the great photos!  Michael's wish is to go to the upcoming Super Bowl taking place in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Arizona Cardinals.
