During last year’s spring game at Nebraska, the Huskers made a little boy’s dream come true. Jack Hoffman, then a 7-year-old suffering from cancer, was brought into the contest. Nebraska ran a play and Hoffman dashed into the end zone for a 69-yard touchdown.  Today, Kansas State followed in the Huskers’ footsteps. Kaiden Schroeder is a young boy also suffering from cancer.
