Photo: Hoffman gets game ball, photo with Bo Pelini

By now, you’ve probably seen the Jack Hoffman video. The seven-year-old Nebraska fan and brain cancer patient was the talk of the sports world Saturday following his inspiring touchdown run during the Nebraska Red-White Spring Game. No matter one’s team, this was one of those moments that all fans could enjoy and feel good about.

Hoffman’s exciting day continued after his highlight, too. The young Huskers fan was presented with the game ball and got to hang out with the team and pose for photos, including the one above with Pelini.

It’s hard not to love this story – not mention to respect the heck out of Bo Pelini and all the Huskers for making it all possible.

This makes a “transplanted California Native” so PROUD to be a Nebraska resident for the last 14 years. As a nurse at The Nebraska Medical Center, I see lots of sadness with Cancer and many other diagnosis so this make this nurse smile and cry at the same time. I hope many other teams will look for opportunities to do things like this for the communities they play and work in.

Thank you Husker Nation for showing that you all have the biggest hearts.

If coach Pelini is ever recruiting in PA in about 15 years (when my oldest son will be a Sr. in HS) he is more than welcome to stop by our house for a home cooked meal. I’m so proud of the young men at Nebraska and the way they embraced this little boy.

Keep fighting Jack Hoffman!
