In the Nebraska spring game they brought out a 7 year old kid that has been fighting cancer to run a 68 yard touchdown. He boy had become good friends with a few of the players so they had him out there in his own uniform. They handed him the ball and the whole team chased him down the field to the endzone. very nice move by the whole program.

Very cool to see young men/collegiate atheletes realize some of the bigger things in life, helping others and put their popularity/"pull"/athletic talents to good use.

Bravo Cornhuskers.

....as letting this kid run the ball into the endzone, his run is actually listed in the official stats for the  Nebraska spring game for posterity. Very awesome move by the program all around. Look for "Jack Hoffman".
