Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant hasn’t always been the subject of positive news, but he proved once again on Tuesday that he has a big heart.

At Cowboys training camp, Bryant said hi to a young fan, who then started to cry tears of joy. Recognizing how much the moment meant to nine-year-old Joshua Williams, Bryant brought him onto the field to play catch.

The kicker? It was also the kid’s birthday!

Talk about an awesome birthday present. That’s one Joshua won’t forget as long as he lives.
