Inspiring Cancer Fighter Jack Hoffman Scores A Touchdown In Nebraska Spring Game

It's basically impossible not to be on #TeamJack.

In one of the best moments of not just Nebraska's spring game, but basically all of spring college football season, a brave young boy battling pediatric brain cancer surprised fans in Memorial Stadium when the team called him out on the field late in the fourth quarter and let him run a play.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez handed the ball off to Jack Hoffman, a seve-year old from Atkinson, who after initially veering left, with a little direction, cut right and followed a convoy of blockers to go the distance and score the longest touchdown of the afternoon. Jack would finish the day as the Huskers leading rusher with 69 yards on the play.

The play (above) is a beyond inspiring moment that you can't help but watch without getting choked up. While we're all #TeamJack, to help the fight against the number one cancer cause of death in children, be sure to donate to the Jack Hoffman fund today and help find a cure for brain tumors.
