Spring Football Report~Seven Year Old Brain Cancer Patient Is An Inspiration

I am posting this a week after the fact, but it is a story that needs telling.

It really isn’t a story about football as much as it is a story about celebrating life.

For a fuller story about Jack Hoffman and his 69 yard touchdown run, late in the Nebraska Cornhuskers annual Red/White game, here is a link.

Jack Hoffman, age seven, is battling pediatric brain cancer. One of the Nebraska football players, senior Rex Burkhead, had learned of young Jack’s condition early in the 2011 season and befriended him. Burkhead, one of the leaders of the team(and a native Texan from Plano), introduced Jack to the entire team and they have all adopted him as their little brother/team mate.

Too try and describe the scene of Jack, wearing the same number Burkhead wore, and his moment of triumph would require a greater wordsmith than I. You will understand when you watch the video and I caution you now, for some reason your screen might become blurry.

Please pray for Team Jack.
