A Great Sports Story

This is a good sports story.

From the Omaha World-Herald:

In a moment likely to go down in Husker lore, 7-year-old Jack Hoffman of Atkinson, Neb., scored the final points of Nebraska’s spring game Saturday.

Jack, battling a rare form of brain cancer, took a handoff from quarterback Taylor Martinez, started to the left side, cut back to the right (with a guiding hand from Martinez) and led a host of Huskers 69 yards to the end zone.

The crowd of 50,000 -plus roared to celebrate the score. This is great stuff and it made me thankful to live in Nebraska.
