And the Winner is...Team Jack

Anyone watch the ESPY awards last night? If you did, you might remember a cute little 7-year-old boy from Nebraska who won the ESPY for "Best Moment" when he ran for a 69 yard touchdown in the Nebraska spring game! Way to go Jack!

If you haven't heard of Jack or the Team Jack Foundation, here's a little background information. Jack is a 7-year-old boy who has brain cancer and Team Jack is his foundation to raise national awareness for Pediatric Brain Cancer. Because of the support of Rex Burkhead (former Nebraska player), and the rest of the Husker coaches and players, Jack and his foundation have gained alot of fans and support across the nation.

I take personal pride in this story because Jack is from my hometown state of Nebraska and my favorite team, the Huskers! In Nebraska, we all love Team Jack and support him in any way we can with his brave fight against brain cancer. At age 7, he has been through a lot already in his life.

If you want to learn more about Jack and his foundation, you can either check out the Team Jack Facebook page or the Team Jack Foundation website!

I have always been proud to be a Husker, but today I am especially proud of Husker nation for all of their support for Jack and for helping him win an ESPY award!


  1. Yah, I was watching it in a bar with grad school peeps and we were all freaking out! :) :)

  2. I cried. Just like I did when I saw the run at the Spring Game. I'm such a doof. But the little guy just tugs at my heartstrings! What a moment for him - all of it! Proud to be a Husker fan! I mean, I usually am, but this makes my heart burst with pride!

    Love this post!
