CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A young man from Cleveland calls himself "The Biggest Bengals Fan Alive," and on Friday he got to see his favorite team practice and meet his heroes. 

Mark Bionce, 15, who has cystic fibrosis, was granted the special visit with the Bengals through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"The Bengals are my favorite football team. They're my favorite sports team of all and I just wanted to meet them. I think it's going to be a life changing opportunity to meet all the players....the best day in my life," Bionce said.  

He got a tour of Paul Brown Stadium and was able to meet his favorite players, Andy Dalton and AJ Green. The Bengals will make him their special guest at their game against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. 

Bionce says he gets more than his share of grief from kids at school who are mostly Steelers or Browns fans, but the criticism doesn't bother Marc who says Cincinnati has the better team.
