Jack Hoffman had a big ESPY Awards night

The young cancer-survivor-turned-running-back took home an ESPY and met with stars on the red carpet.

Seven-year-old cancer survivor Jack Hoffman won the award for "Best Moment" at the 2013 ESPY Awards Wednesday night. Hoffman, who has become a friend of Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead and the rest of the team, earned the award with a 69-yard touchdown run in the Nebraska spring game:

But Hoffman's night wasn't limited to picking up awards on national television. He and his dad walked the red carpet, at one point meeting with fellow nominee Jadeveon Clowney:

The meeting went slightly better than the last time Clowney collided unexpectedly with a Big Ten running back.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez, who guided Jack across the line of scrimmage during his run, also posted a number of pictures taken with Jack at the ESPY Awards.

Jack, who has been fighting brain cancer, announced his last chemotherapy treatment to a full crowd at the College World Series in Omaha a month ago.
