Nebraska Football: Jack Hoffman’s 69-Yard Touchdown

Cornhusker fan and brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman rushed for a touchdown in the spring scrimmage on Apr. 6.

The Nebraska football Red-White scrimmage closed out the Cornhuskers’ spring season on Saturday, and head coach Bo Pelini had plenty of surprises in store for the 60,000-plus in attendance and Big Ten Network viewers nationwide. The best surprise came from Jack Hoffman’s 69-yard touchdown rush.

Jack Hoffman is a young brain cancer patient the team brought on the Memorial Stadium turf Saturday in full Husker gear. He took a hand-off from quarterback Taylor Martinez and broke off a 69-yard touchdown rush.
