Seven-Year-Old Boy Suffering From Brain Cancer Scores Touchdown For Nebraska Huskers
It was a touching moment on a college football field that’s receiving national attention.
Jack Hoffman is a seven-year-old kid who's a big fan of the University of Nebraska Huskers.
Over the weekend, at the spring scrimmage game, the team let Jack play as 60,000 fans watched.
There wasn't a dry eye in the house as Jack scored a touchdown. The team lifted him above their shoulders like the hero he is.
In a Skype interview, INSIDE EDITION’s Les Trent asked Jack, “What was that like?”
Jack replied, “It was so awesome. It was like being a real player."
Jack's survived two brain surgeries since being diagnosed with cancer in 2011. His touchdown run came during a two week brake from a grueling 60-week chemotherapy regimen.
Les said, “You must so proud.”
Jacks dad replied, “Our hearts are just over flowed with gratitude. It’s just a bucket full of human emotions all at once. It was pretty overwhelming.”
It's was an amazing moment in the life of a brave little boy that he will never forget.
