Wishes can come true.
The 13-year-old hung out with the team on Saturday, following their final practice ahead of their NFC Championship game with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Schaan was seen inside a team huddle screaming the words “You guys ready for the game tomorrow?” followed by “Niners on three…one, two, three, Niners.”
The fun didn’t end there. Schaan and his family were treated to an all-access experience at Levi’s Stadium during the game.
“It was very cool. We got to go down onto the field and I got to stand by the players for the national anthem,” said Schaan.
The meeting was made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, something the family was extremely grateful for.
“We couldn’t have planned this type of a wish. His actual wish was just to go to a San Francisco 49ers game in the 2020 season,” said Schaan’s mother Bernadette.
She said the opportunity to go to a playoff game provided a lot of extra excitement.
“There was alumni there, there was a lot of hype. There was a lot of different events that wouldn’t have gone of if it was just a regular season game.”
His father Darren Schaan tweeted “What an amazing day. Boston loved every minute of it.”
Schaan also received a special gift from tight end George Kittle, a jersey and a pair of gloves.
Schaan has cystic fibrosis. His mother says he is doing well right now, but the illness comes with a lot of extra health responsibilities.
The 49ers won their game against the Packers and will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 2.
