A truly heart-warming story courtesy of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, as they let a huge fan battling brain cancer run a play at running back. Jack Hoffman is just 7 years old, but the Cornhuskers put him in for a play during the 4th quarter of their Spring game this weekend.. And he took it 69 yards for a touchdown!

As Jack reaches the end-zone the Nebraska players raise him up into the air. Hoffman became friendly with the Nebraska players after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, and they gave their biggest fan a truly brilliant memory.
