It's safe to say this football fan had a good week.
When the Carolina Panthers released Steve Smith earlier this month, nobody took the news harder than a young fan named Gavin, whose emotional reaction went viral after his dad filmed him sobbing.
Fortunately for Gavin, one of the video's nearly 500,000 views was actually Steve Smith himself, who took to Twitter in an effort to track down the family:
I need that kids info. If anyone knw him or how to get in touch pls help me... I need help finding Gavin. The crying kid

Well, on ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday, Smith made good on his efforts and surprised Gavin and his family. In addition to the meet and greet, young Gavin seemed pleased to get some apparel to rep Smith's new team, the Baltimore Ravens.
Watch young Gavin meet Steve Smith in the video above.
