 More than a week into training camp, the Carolina Panthers have added an impressive addition to their roster Friday. 

Joining the team just in time for the Panthers’ annual Fan Fest practice will be 8-year-old Domanic “Dom” Fuller, who will have his wish granted to “be a Carolina Panthers player and meet the team.” 

Fuller, who is battling Cystic Fibrosis, will suit up alongside Joe Webb, serving as a dual-purpose quarterback/wide receiver offensive threat.

Dom will spend a memorable night as a Carolina Panther – getting his locker assignment, attending team meetings, and practicing in Bank of America Stadium alongside his new teammates and coaches. 

Dom will also attend his first press conference as an esteemed NFL player.

Dom’s first order of business on Friday will be signing a contract with General Manager Marty Hurney. 

Dom’s 4 year-old brother, Camden, will be on-hand to assist with negotiations.

Dom is a rising fourth-grader at Edwards Knox Central School in Harrisville, New York.

Dom enjoys playing video games, soccer and basketball.

He is a big fan of "Star Wars," chicken wings, pizza, tacos and lasagna.
