Young Nebraska fan Jack Hoffman recently found out that he has had a reoccurrence of brain cancer, so Bo Pelini and the Cornhuskers want their buddy to know that they are behind him.

Coach Pelini sent out a tweet to Jack to let him know that he has the support of the team:

Two years ago, Hoffman captured the hearts of everyone in the United States when he ran in a touchdown during Nebraska's spring game. Ever since then, the youngster and the team have fought the battle together.

Last year, his brain tumor had been declared in remission. The family found out in early August that the tumor has been growing over the past few months. 

It appears that Hoffman has plenty of people supporting him in his battle once again.
