7-year-old Jack Hoffman is finished with his chemo

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

That video of 7-year-old Jack Hoffman running for a touchdown during Nebraska's spring game is easily the best moment of this college football offseason, but it appears Hoffman had an even better day this week.

Hoffman, who has been battling brain cancer for the last two years, visited the College World Series on Monday where he signed autographs for fans and made an important announcement on the Jumbotron during a game.

Hoffman told the crowd Tuesday would be the day he underwent his final chemotherapy treatment.

That is just fantastic news for a kid who has done so much to help raise awareness and support for pediatric brain cancer research in recent months.

Since rushing for the touchdown during Nebraska's spring game Hoffman has had a trading card created for him and had a visit with President Barack Obama at the White House.
