Bucks County teen headed to England with help of St. Joe's, Make-A-Wish

WYNNEFIELD (WPVI) -- A Bucks County teen is headed to England to meet his hero, but he didn't know he was going until Sunday.

The Action Cam was at St. Joseph's University when students surprised 13-year-old Gabriel from Warminster with a trip to see his favorite soccer team, Everton, and meet goalie Tim Howard.

Howard is also goalie for the U.S. Men's National Team.

The school's Make-A-Wish chapter and soccer teams worked more than a year on the trip for Gabriel, who has a nervous system disorder.

He and his family leave for England on Thursday.
