Great Moments in Broadcasting: Seven-Year-Old Cancer Patient Got to Score a Touchdown in Spring Football Game
Great sports moments happen all the time, but when they mix with real life situations and are powerful enough to bring a tear to our eyes, those are the ones that are truly special. Like our own Mitchell Marcus/Jonathon Montanez story, for example.
And this heartwarming moment for a seven year-old University of Nebraska fan. Get yourself some Kleenex and watch this.
Jack Hoffman has been battling brain cancer for a couple of years now, and in that time became friends with some of the players on the Cornhuskers squad who helped him go through many weeks of chemotherapy. Over the weekend, Jack attended the team’s spring football game and brought the crowd to its feet when he was called in to the game late in the 4th quarter and ran for a 69-yard touchdown.
