7 Year old goes toe to toe with the Nebraska Cornhuskers and scores a 69 yard touchdown!
When you think of American football, especially here in Texas, you generally have thoughts of huge corn fed men snorting, gritting their teeth, and digging their cleats into the ground trying to get more solid footing for one reason, to crush the guy wearing the other color jersey and pound him into the dirt.
You usually think of tackles, passes, hard bone crunching hits, and rivals between fans like nothing you’ve ever seen.
What you don’t think about is being inspired to the point you get goose bumps!
You usually don’t think about a 7 year old boy who has battled brain cancer for 2 years, had 2 surgeries, and endured a 60-week barrage of chemotherapy.
And you normally wouldn’t think about that same boy standing toe to toe with these powerful giant athletes all suited up in full uniform.
But on this day, that was exactly what happened for Jack Hoffman.
This is 100% awesome pure feel good inspiration in just about 1 minute.
It’s these simple acts of kindness that make a lasting impression on the world in a positive way and for this little guy, made his dreams come true in front of 60,000 cheering fans!
Sometimes we forget how much power and ability we have to tape peoples lives with our words, actions, love, and leadership because we take ourselves and our talents for granted.
We all start at the beginning, and with hard work, perseverance, dedication, and through NEVER giving up, we gain skills, power, and abilities we didn’t have when we started. We gain strength, wisdom, knowledge, and confidence we didn’t have when we started.
And whenever we have the ability or opportunity to do something that impacts peoples lives like this, we should always remember that while some things in life my seem incredible simple to us to the point we take them for granted, having one shot at doing those very same things for others can be a life long dream come true.
Good job Cornhuskers for executing those phenomenal act of kindness and for not only adding an unforgettable experience to this brave little boys life, but for inspiring the rest of us to find ways to to the same for others with our talents, skills, power, and ability!
And Jack Hoffman… Great run little man, you scored a TD! 🙂
