Eight-Year-Old Scores a Very Special TD for East Carolina

Two weeks ago, Nebraska provided one of the most touching scenes college sports has had in years when the Huskers staff inserted Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old brain cancer patient, into the lineup for what proved to be an exhilarating 69-yard touchdown run. On Saturday, East Carolina produced another big, heart-warming moment. This one was centered around Noah Roberts, an 8-year-old who in 2010 was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that has resulted in the child needing to have two tumors removed from his brain and one from his spinal cord. But for Noah, more tumors have emerged. He had three more in his brain with doctors detecting the newest one, a fourth tumor, two months ago while they worked on removing the one from his spine.
