Nebraska football sends heartfelt video to boy with cancer
Nebraska came through for Jack Hoffman last year when the boy scored a touchdown during the team's spring game after his battle with cancer.
On Wednesday, after learning Hoffman's cancer had returned, the Cornhuskers showed their support once again, uploading a video of encouragement from coach Bo Pelini and the players as the boy prepares to start another round of treatment.
"Hey Jack, as a football team, as a group of your friends ... we're here to support you," Pelini said. "Remain strong. You're in our thoughts and prayers all the time no matter what, and obviously we wish the best for you, your family and you're gonna come out of it on top. There's no doubt. You're a strong young man."
Here's video of Hoffman's memorable touchdown:
