Team Jack

If you were following me this Fall, you know that I like a good college athletics story. I posted a few this past year and even though we haven't reached the 2013 Fall season...I have a great one to share with you! Below is a video of the Nebraska Spring Game from Saturday. I am an alumni of Nebraska and this is so heart warming and just plain cool.

Below you will see Jack Hoffman, a 7 year old Nebraska kid fighting brain cancer, score the longest running touchdown in a Spring Game in Nebraska's history.  I'm proud of the players and coaches that created this moment and the pure joy they showed as they ran the field with Jack. You may have already seen this clip, I know it was even highlighted on my local evening news in NC! Way to go Jack!

This story warmed my heart. Our community was recently hit hard and suddenly by an 8 year old boy fighting brain cancer. Please keep him in your prayers as well.
