Jack Hoffman Wins ESPYS' Best Moment Award For Inspirational Nebraska Touchdown (VIDEO)

Jul 18, 2013

Jack Hoffman accomplished what very few people did this year: He defeated Andy Murray. The 7-year-old cancer survivor who rose to fame after an inspirational 69-yard touchdown run during Nebraska's spring football scrimmage bested Murray, Alex Morgan and Chuck Pagano to win "Best Moment" at The ESPYS. Morgan was nominated for her stunning goal that lifted the U.S. women's national soccer team into the gold medal match at the London Olympics, while the Colts' coach authored his own inspiring moment by returning to the sideline after battling leukemia.

"This is super duper awesome," Hoffman said, via KBRX. "Thanks for the trophy. I’m glad that you are all now on Team Jack and I know with you we can’t lose. Thanks!"
