Blind Long Snapper Jake Olson Was Put In The Game For A Successful PAT

|

On Saturday night, USC Trojans head coach Clay Helton gave us a moment that we will all remember throughout the 2017 college football season.

Late in the game against Western Michigan with victory in hand, the Trojans scored a touchdown and Helton immediately called a timeout. During the timeout, blind long snapper Jake Olson was told to warm up.

Olson then entered the game for his first play as a Trojan and snapped the ball on a successful extra point.

The snap was perfect.

It was one of those moments that reminds us all of why we love sports.

After the kick was good, teammates and coaches celebrated with Olson the entire way to the sideline.

USC went on to win the game, 49-31, with Olson’s extra point being the exclamation mark on the victory.

The Trojans return to action next weekend against Stanford at home.
