Once in awhile in this job, you’re part of a special moment that you don’t see coming.
Monday was it.
A few friends conspired to get Hunter Crites to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp. It’s his favorite team. Hunter has been a standout member of the Easter Seals kids crew, and a few months back, took his first steps without crutches through extensive therapy.
The Steelers trip was a surprise to him until he pulled into the parking lot in Latrobe, Pa. on Monday.

What was a surprise to me and the rest of us was the agenda of defensive end Nick Eason. Not surprising is the size of his heart.
Check out the photos to give you a glimpse.
It will be my Sunday story. So come back please. We'll have more pix and video.
