A seven year-old boy battling brain cancer scores the play of his young life.
Wearing the number 22 jersey, former running back Rex Burkhead's number, Jack Hoffman came out onto the field at Memorial Stadium during Saturday's University of Nebraska Spring Football Game.
The team has sort of unofficially adopted Jack, and the players wanted to give him a moment he'd keep forever and boy, did they. Jack went "69 yards" to score a touch-down and no pressure or anything, he did it all in front of nearly 60 thousand cheering fans.
That touchdown also made jack the game's leading rusher.
