Nebraska fan Jack Hoffman to visit the White House

By Zac Ellis

The biggest star of college football's spring practice was Jack Hoffman, the seven-year-old Nebraska fan battling pediatric brain cancer. The Cornhuskers inserted Hoffman into their spring game on April 6, engineering a play for the youngster to run in a 69-yard touchdown. The of Hoffman's play (above) currently has more than seven million views on YouTube.

But the ride isn't over for Hoffman just yet. HuskerInsider.com reports that Hoffman and his parents, Andy and Brianna Hoffman, accepted an invitation to visit the White House and meet President Barack Obama. The family was set to visit with the president on Monday.

Hoffman befriended former Husker running back Rex Burkhead last year while battling brain cancer, and the Nebraska player helped spearhead the "Team Jack" program, which raised awareness of the disease to help find a cure. Burkhead was drafted by the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals over the weekend.
