FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Pawtucket football player Quinn Miller, whose story of adversity for playing a male-dominated sport went viral, got the chance to meet with New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore on Saturday.

Quinn’s story went viral after Gilmore responded to a message posted on WPRI’s Street Stories Twitter account looking ahead to a story featuring her.

Gilmore was inspired and said he wanted to meet the 12-year-old.

Gilmore presented Quinn with tickets to Sunday afternoon’s game against the Cleveland Browns, passes to the Patriots Hall of Fame and an autographed football.

After a quick chat with the All-Pro and some pictures, Quinn was surprised by a visit from team owner Robert Kraft.

“I’m proud of you,” Kraft said to the youngster before giving her a high five and heading off.

The Patriots take on the Browns at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
