During last year’s spring game at Nebraska, the Huskers made a little boy’s dream come true. Jack Hoffman, then a 7-year-old suffering from cancer, was brought into the contest. Nebraska ran a play and Hoffman dashed into the end zone for a 69-yard touchdown.
Today, Kansas State followed in the Huskers’ footsteps. Kaiden Schroeder is a young boy also suffering from cancer. He’s a lifelong Wildcat fan and has made a personal connection with Bill Snyder’s program, especially defensive end Ryan Mueller. During Kansas State’s spring game Saturday afternoon, Snyder called for Schroeder to come into the game. He was handed the ball and gashed the Wildcats’ defense for a 30-yard touchdown.
