hoffman[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ack Hoffman, the seven-year old brain cancer patient whose 69-yard touchdown run during Nebraska’s spring game captivated the nation, got to meet the President.

Jack, along with his parents Andy and Brianna Hoffman, visited the White House and met President Barack Obama on Monday.

Hoffman, who was given the game ball by Huskers coach Bo Pelini, was even given his own trading card by Upper Deck. The card was originally intended to just be a digital card and some blow ups that he could sign for charity, but demand was so high that Upper Deck decided to create an actual card and put it into production.

Nearly 8 million people have watched the video on YouTube. In case you want to Hoffman’s run one more time, it is below:
