Jack Hoffman’s 69-yard touchdown run during the Husker spring game touched countless hearts. Video of the 7-year-old cancer patient’s run went viral, and Jack has since met President Obama and had his own Upper Deck trading card made.
Now comes the ESPY award nomination.
Jack’s touchdown in among the choices fans can vote on in the Best Moment category. The other Best Moment finalists are Alex Morgan’s winning goal against Canada in an Olympic women’s soccer semifinal, Andy Murray winning Wimbledon and an Olympic gold medal, and Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano’s return to the sideline after battling cancer.
Voting ends on July 17 at 9 p.m. EST.
According to ESPN, “The ESPYS, which will be shown on ESPN on July 17 at 9 p.m. (EST), honor ESPN’s commitment to The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a partnership launched with the late (Jim) Valvano in 1993.”
