The Cleveland Browns ended their Family Night practice on an extremely high note as a well orchestrated play (and plan) allowed 5-year-old Ryan Encinas to run for a 40-yard touchdown in front of over 24,000 screaming fans. The moment brought up memories of what Nebraska did for Jack Hoffman earlier this year. You can check out another video HERE.
According to Ohio.com:
Encinas was selected by the Littlest Heroes, a nonprofit organization that impacts the lives of children with cancer and their families. A tumor was discovered on Ryan’s left lung at age 2, but he celebrated two years of remission Aug. 2.
Chudzinski said his 5-year-old son, Kaelan, suggested the idea after watching a similar scene unfold on TV. Brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman, 7, ran for a 69-yard touchdown this year during the University of Nebraska’s spring game.
It is hard to not root for a team that can do something like this.
