Child with brain cancer scores touchdown

Why should you watch this video?

Because we all we need to be reminded there are good people around us that do the right thing for the right reasons. And because we know that sports can have a powerful impact and draw emotion out of the most hardened individuals.

Oh, and it just might restore your faith in humanity.

The back story is that Jack Hoffman is a 7-year old brain cancer patient who happens to be a HUGE Nebraska Cornhusker fan. During a spring practice scrimmage, young Jack came into the game as a running back and, after a stuttering start, ran for a 69 yard touchdown to the cheers of more than 60,000, as well as the players on both sides of the ball.

I DARE you to watch this video and not get goose bumps...or maybe even shed a tear.

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass upů so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
