EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —

A 10-year-old boy may have looked out of place on a pro football field, but he was able to make a touchdown, not only in the end zone but also in fans’ hearts.

Jesse Pallas was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011. It is now in remission.

On Saturday night, one of Pallas’ dreams came true. He was able to score a touchdown for his favorite pro team, JetsWire reported.

Pallas, who wore Matt Forte’s 22 jersey, rushed for 50 yards, with a little help from some great blocking, and a few falls, during the Jets’ Green and White Scrimmage.

Not only did he get the score, he also got the MVP at the end of the scrimmage, and a hug from Forte himself, JetsWire reported.
