Jack Hoffman, an extra ordinary kid whose 69-yard touchdown run during Nebraska’s recent spring football game made him an internet sensation, met President Obama on Monday.
The 7-year-old, who is combating with pediatric brain cancer, got to meet the president of the United States for about 15 minutes in the Oval office.
Jack’s touchdown run video has been viewed almost around 8 million times and obviously one of those viewers was Obama himself, who talked to the little boy about his long touchdown run and his battle with cancer. Obama also gave Jack a sweet little gift by signing a Nebraska football for him.
Jack while talking to ABC about his visit to the White House said that it was the highlight of his weekend tour of Washington.
It’s great to see how President Obama, out of his whole busy schedule takes out time to do things that make his people happy. He cares and that makes him a pretty cool president.
Here’s Jack’s touchdown run video for you to watch (once again):
