The event seemed to set especially well with Josh Norman who appeared to be the favorite on the day as fans, young and old, made sure to get a selfie with the young corner back.

"I love people", Norman said. "I'm just a likeable guy!" (He may also be the most knowledgeable guy.)

County Executive Rushern Baker was also on hand to assist with handing out food items.
