Jack Hoffman is one of With Leather's (and everybody else's) favorite people.
If you don't recognize the name, he's the 7-year old brain cancer patient who ran for a 69-yard touchdown during the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ recent spring game. He’s been a celebrity ever since, getting his own Upper Deck card and hanging out (and assumedly talking health care reform) with President Obama. He’d be dating a Kardashian if … you know, he wasn’t 7.
Anyway, Jack’s latest moment of stardom occurred at the College World Series, an event that this year has already proven itself dangerous for children. Why is Jack Hoffman even at the College World Series, you might ask? For a very special reason.
