Steve Smith Meets Crying Gavin On 'Good Morning America'

Posted Mar 20, 2014

Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith was ‘moved’ by the young fan’s passion.


Little Gavin has stopped crying.

Gavin became an internet sensation over the past few days after his father posted a video of him throwing a fit upon hearing the news that the Carolina Panthers cut his favorite wide receiver Steve Smith, who was signed by the Ravens a day later.

Smith was moved by the young fan’s passion and flew to meet him on “Good Morning America” on Thursday. And he may have converted Gavin to a Ravens fan.

Here’s the video of their meeting. Don’t miss the adorable hug.

Smith had actually met Gavin three or four years ago when he and Smith’s youngest son, Boston, played together. But seeing Gavin’s video was just further proof of what the receiver meant to the Carolina area after 13 years as a Panther.

“It touched me a little bit," Smith told ESPN Radio. "He was bawling. He had the ugly-face cry.”

Smith also debuted his new No. 89 Ravens jersey with “Smith Sr” on the back. Smith is having his jersey name changed because he is expecting a baby boy this summer, Steve Smith, Jr.
