What's the backstory on the kid?
December 3, 2011 - Forever haunted by what I witnessed...
Awesome. Great moment for that little guy.
Sign that kid up. Looks way better than Hill.

That was pretty rad.
You would think OTPT would know how to post a video.
Seems like he has some form of brain cancer. Very cool of the team to do.
How could his parents name him that?
I didn't realize it until you mentioned it. LOL.
More on Jack's story here:

Well worth the view. Somebody is cutting onions here.
On April 22, 2011, Jack was life flighted to Children’s Hospital Omaha after suffering a life threatening seizure. An MRI showed a lesion in the left temporal lobe. Doctors feared HSV Encephalitis, a life threatening brain virus. A rigorous 21-day treatment followed. Later testing revealed our worst fear--a brain tumor.
On May 20, 2011, an Omaha neurosurgeon attempted tumor resection. The surgery was unnsuccessful as only a small amount of the tumor was removed. The remaining tumor was declared inoperable. Pathology revealed a cancerous glioma. During this time, Jack battled the onset of Secondary Epilepsy--a condition caused by the tumor. After April 22, Jack suffered frequent partial seizures, sometimes upto 10 a day. The seizures persisted despite high dosages of two anti-seizure medications.
Specialists at Children's Hospital Boston were consulted in August 2011. Pediatric Neurosurgeon Liliana Goumnerova indicated that she felt she could likely safely resect the tumor, and at the same time achieve seizure relief by using intraoperative electrocorticography. Jack's 2nd brain surgery in 5 months occurred at Boston on October 10th. The second surgery went great. After surgery, Dr. Goumnerova came out of the operating room smiling. Dr. Goumnerova removed a golf ball sized tumor. Nearly all of the tumor was removed, with the possible exception of a small amount of residual near the brain stem. Thankfully, since the second surgery, Jack has not suffered a single seizure and is doing great clinically.
In January, Jack traveled to Boston for his first follow-up MRI. On January 11, 2012, the MRI looked great as the "spot" showed no sign of growth. Jack's neurologist then aggressively began tapering Keppra. By March 22, 2012, Jack was down to one anti-seizure medicine.
A 6-month post operation MRI on April 18, 2012 in Boston surprisingly revealed a progression of the "spot." The "spot" is inoperable. Doctors have now decided that chemotherapy was the next best therapy. Accordingly, Jack had a port surgery on April 26, 2012 and began 60 weeks of chemotherapy on April 27, 2012, at CH Omaha. His chemotherapy will continue until approximately July 2013.
Jack and his family have received incredible support. Jack has a very loving family and community. Nebraska's Rex Burkhead has also helped make people aware of Jack's fight by so graciously wearing a "Team Jack - Pray" wristband during the 2011 and 2012 football seasons. We thank God for his involvement in Jack's life, as well as the thousands of supporters across the country. God is good.
Cliffnotes: Brain cancer. Nebraska team pretty much adopted him after Rex Burkhead brought him aboard.
Saban has already offered.
Is someone cutting onions in here? wtf is wrong with my eyes?
That was incredible. What a gesture. Classy folks up in Lincoln. Definitely going back up there for the game this fall. Even though we got our asses kicked last time, they were so insanely nice it was bizarre. They were actually apologizing for beating us.
60 weeks of chemo? Wow.
