Nebraska’s spring game included special moment for Jack Hoffman

We all knew it would take something incredible to get Jadeveon Clowney’s hit of a Michigan running back knocked out of the Top Play of the Week on SportsCenter.

Three months later a highlight finally topped it. Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old with pediatric brain cancer, took a handoff from Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez and ran 69 yards for a touchdown as nearly 60,000 people cheered him on.

Both sidelines met him in the endzone as the players hoisted him above the crowd for one of the best moments you’ll see on a football field.

Jack would later say, “It was awesome.”

No, Jack, you are awesome.
