"He's really nice and kind and he really cares about kids," Palmer said.

Carroll showed him around the Seahawk facilities, when game time rolled around Palmer got things started by taking the game ball to the refs.

"It was scary at first but when I did it, it wasn't as bad," Palmer said.

"I would like to say thank you very much," Palmer said.
