Watch: KOMO, Make-A-Wish help aspiring sports broadcaster's dream come true

Decatur High School student Kahlel Young had a dream come true today as he visited the KOMO News team as part of the Make A Wish Washington and Alaska Foundation and delivered a sports cast with guidance from KOMO's Mike Ferreri. Young is battling cancer and isn't allowed to place football in his senior year, and said if he doesn't make it to the NFL, he wants to be a sportscaster. His day was made even more special with special appearances by Seahawks Hall of Famer Walter Jones, and Kicker and all time Seahawks scoring leader Norm Johnson. (Sy Bean / Seattle Refined)
