Boy battling heart problems named Raiders honorary captain

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A young Raiders fan has some new inspiration to keep fighting as he faces a life-threatening health challenge.

Josiah Moore got to meet some of his heroes in person during Sunday night's game against the Broncos. He joined the Raiderettes, cheering for the silver and black at the Oakland Coliseum.

Moore is battling heart problems. He was on the sidelines before last night's game thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

"Oh my gosh, he's overwhelmed, so overwhelmed. Sometimes reality strikes, sometimes he's not. He's just having a blast," said Myesha Moore, mother.

"It's really a god given moment right now. I really appreciate Make-a-Wish making this happen for my son," said Steven Moore, father.

Josiah's parents smiled even more when their son joined the Raiders, as an honorary captain, for the coin toss.
