When 13-year-old Stephen first met with his volunteer wish granters he thought that his wish was too big to grant. They smiled and reminded him that Make-A-Wish® can create magic. Stephen described watching Boise State football games from his home in Texas, his love of the Broncos, and his deep desire to see the blue turf in person. Stephen’s most heartfelt wish was to be a Boise State football coach for a day!
Make-A-Wish Idaho and Boise State University worked together to make Stephen's wish an unforgettable experience. During his wish weekend Stephen and his family shared a meal with his favorite players, attended a coaches meeting, walked onto the field after being introduced as a coach then stood on the sidelines during the Broncos’ victory over Hawaii. Stephen’s wish was felt by everyone in the stadium.
