USC Trojans freshman Jake Olson is one of the most inspiring young men in all of college football. The blind long snapper has been a lifelong fan of the Trojans program, with a history dating back a few years.
Now, in college, Olson is close to seeing his dream of snapping in a game for USC become a reality.
USC head coach Steve Sarkisian recently addressed Olson’s status with the team, saying that he will put him in a game. However, first there will be a mutual agreement in place with the opponent for that game.
The agreement will be all about safety.
Olson is on very strict non-contact guidelines and if he were to be hit on a play it would be a major issue. Hopefully, Sarkisian can find a coach that he trusts and a team full of players who will respect the moment Sarkisian is trying to create for Olson.
It will be great to see when it finally happens.
