Young cancer patient scores TD in Nebraska spring game..



Seven-year-old Jack Hoffman is a Nebraska fan fighting brain cancer. During the Cornhuskers' spring game Saturday, the team gave Hoffman a special moment, sending him on the field in a Nebraska uniform to run a play in the fourth quarter. Hoffman took the handoff from quarterback Taylor Martinez around the right side for a 69-yard score.

When Hoffman reached the end zone, the team surrounded him, lifting up into the air. Sports can be pretty dang awesome.

This is for all those who think there are no redeeming qualities in sports. Good luck to Jack in his fight.
