“We’re here to support you. Remain strong. We’re behind you, and we’re thinking about you through this whole thing.” Those were the words of Bo Pelini as he delivered a heartfelt message to Nebraska’s biggest fan, 8-year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman.

Last year, Hoffman participated in Nebraska’s Spring Game, running in for a touchdown as the team trailed behind him. It was a great, great moment and yes, it got dusty in here.

Sadly, this past August, Hoffman had a recurrence of his brain cancer. That’s what prompted the video from Bo Pelini and the Nebraska squad.

Jack has a good prognosis according to his family, so let’s keep him in our thoughts. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to have a good cry.
