UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PULLS A VERY CLASSY MOVE
With college football holding their spring practices this month, most of them are doing inter-squad scrimmages. The Nebraska Cornhuskers had theirs on Saturday, and the highlight of the game was when a seven-year-old boy with brain cancer got the chance to put on a uniform and run a play with the team.
Seven-year-old Jack Hoffman was diagnosed with a golf-sized tumor in 2011, and had it removed shortly after. He's still undergoing treatment for cancer, and became friends with some of the Nebraska players while being treated.
The team was told that Jack was on a break from treatment and invited him on to the field to take a handoff from the quarterback. Jack got some amazing blocking and ran 69 yards in front of 60,000 fans to score a touchdown.
Don't worry if you tear up...this is one of those stories that makes it impossible NOT to tear up.
