STOUGHTON (WKOW) — Among the hundreds of people who showed up Wednesday at a Stoughton car dealership to meet Milwaukee Bucks’ basketball star Giannis Antetokounmpo was one 11-year-old girl with a special gift for her favorite player.

The girl’s dad posted the heartwarming video to YouTube, and it quickly when viral.

“My 11 year old daughter had worked on several art projects for a year and half, and kept them in a folder in the hopes to one day deliver to the Greek Freak. He accepted graciously,” Pete Stauffer wrote in the YouTube post.

“Thank you so much. This is amazing,” Antetokounmpo said. “You did all this?” Then he gave Lily a big hug.
