Ole Miss – 2013 Spring Football Info

by Travis Normand

I got this a while back and wanted to say thanks to Ole Miss for providing them to me.

This is a tri-fold brochure (8.5 x 11) with everything one would need to know about Ole Miss football during the spring of 2013.  The brochure included a spring roster, coach information, stats from 2012, and a position-by-position break-down of the entire team.

This was a pretty useful tool and I appreciate Ole Miss sending it out.  I am always shocked that more programs don’t do stuff like this.

7-year-old cancer patient, Jack Hoffman, scores “winning” touchdown in Nebraska spring game (and it counts)!

by Travis Normand

Yes, you read the headline correctly.  Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old who has been battling brain cancer, scored a touchdown in Nebraska’s spring game on Saturday (April 13, 2013) to help seal the victory for the red squad.

The score was 26-25 in favor of the red squad when Hoffman got the ball and took it 69 yards for a touchdown in front of 60,000 fans.  Hoffman’s touchdown was the final score of the game which ended 32-25.

Asked what he was thinking when he ran onto the field, Jack said, “Scoring a touchdown.”

And when he broke free and scored? “It felt awesome.” And the crowd reaction? “Really awesome.”

From WTSP.com

Hoffman’s touchdown run came in at No. 1 on ESPN’s Top Ten plays of the day and the trading card company, Upper Deck, has created a limited edition Jack Hoffman trading card which Jack can use for fundraising purposes.
