7 Year-Old Scores Touchdown Against Nebraska!

I saw this on ESPN on Sat­ur­day night and couldn’t believe how cool this story was.

Col­lege foot­ball teams are hold­ing their spring prac­tice this month, and most of them end the two weeks of prac­tice with a scrim­mage game… offense against defense.

The Nebraska Corn­huskers had theirs on Sat­ur­day in front of 60,000 fans… and the high­light was when a seven-year-old kid named Jack Hoff­man got to come onto the field.

Jack had a golf-ball-sized tumor in his brain removed in 2011… and he’s still under­go­ing treat­ment for can­cer. He became friends with some of the Nebraska play­ers while under­go­ing 60 weeks of chemotherapy.

So the team invited Jack to run a play in their spring game. They called a play… the quar­ter­back handed him the ball… and Jack ran 69 yards for a touchdown.
