7-Year-Old Boy Who Scored Touchdown In Nebraska Football Game Meets Obama (PHOTO)

Jack Hoffman, a seven-year-old from Atkinson, Neb. who is battling pediatric brain cancer, met President Barack Obama on Monday at the White House.

Hoffman became something of a viral star earlier this month when he scored a 69-year-old touchdown in the Nebraska Cornhuskers spring football game. In the photo above, Hoffman holds a ball signed by Obama.

Watch Hoffman score the touchdown:
