A young fan's wish to announce a Baltimore Ravens NFL draft pick will come true next week.

According to CSN Mid-Atlantic, T.J. Onwuanibe was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015. Through Make-A-Wish, he requested the opportunity to declare a Ravens draft pick.

On Friday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh informed Onwuanibe via video that his wish had been granted. Onwuanibe will do the honors of reporting the No. 16 overall pick in Philadelphia on Thursday night.

After the audience's applause drowned out Harbaugh's final words, Ravens cheerleaders and the team mascot, Poe, emerged to celebrate the news.
