USC long-snapper Jake Olson got a chance to prove you don’t need to be able to see to play football. Late in the fourth quarter Sunday after USC sealed its 49-31 win over Western Michigan, Olson, who is blind, got his shot to play in a game.

He did not disappoint. And it’s clear just how much the moment meant to the entire USC squad after Olson perfectly executed the snap for the extra point.


It was a magical moment for the team, Olson, his family and friends.
