Jack Hoffman and the Nebraska football program have received plenty of love for Saturday’s touching moment in the Red-White Spring Game, and for good reason. Hoffman, a seven-year old Nebraska fan and brain cancer survivor, warmed the hearts of sports fans across the nation when he lined up in the backfield and ran for a long touchdown.

The video of the scamper (find it below) has taken off. There’s now an unforgettable drawing of  it, too. Omaha World-Herald’s cartoonist Jeffrey Koterba did it, and it’s incredible.

The drawing captures the scene of quarterback Taylor Martinez guiding a cutting Hoffman to the right side of the field, before the young Huskers fan turned it up field and kicked it into another gear.

The best part, perhaps: The nameplates of the players around Hoffman read “Heart,” “Soul,” “Hope” and “Inspiration,” with a thought bubble in the top right corner reading, “The true meaning of Husker football…”
