Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported that Jake Olson, the blind longsnapper who long dreamed of playing college football, had officially been cleared by the NCAA. Tuesday afternoon, he was able to take the field with the USC Trojans for the first time.
College Spun shared the video of Olson snapping on a field goal and his teammates congratulating on a good snap. It was perfect and you would never know that he was not able to see at all.
He couldn’t have looked happier to be out on the field doing what he loved for a team that he loved. No matter what team you root for, you have to be hoping that Olson gets his Rudy-like moment to hit the field for the Trojans this year.
