6-year-old Braylon Beam gets the chance to coach the Carolina Panthers

Braylon Beam's dream is to coach his favorite team the Carolina Panthers and he got to do just that Friday at Fan Fest.

The press conference can be a daunting task to a rookie head coach, but Braylon Beam already has a super bowl on day one of the job.

"I know we're going to win the super bowl, be brave, be positive, have the heart and go cats," Beam said.

No one has more heart than coach Beam, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February. Seven months later he's coaching the Panthers.

"This is the best day ever," Beam said.

Beam garnered national media attention with his dance moves during his appearance n the Ellen DeGeneres show in May. Those same dance moves were expected for the rising first grader Friday, but he was surprised with his face on a football card, which he is a big fan of collecting.

After the press conference it was time to hit the field and show off his moves in front of the fans. Then a meeting with Cam Newton, "I'll tell him throw deep, get ready for the season, do everything you can do best," Beam coached.

Then Beam put the players to work as he  coached, but also took the time to sign his playing card for the fans. With that Beam's first practice was in the books.
