Jake Olson has long been one of the most inspirational student-athletes in college football. Olson, who is the blind long-snapper on the USC Trojans roster, overcame the odds to make the team and even got onto the field last season to snap the ball on a successful extra point conversion.
Since then, Olson continues to fine-tune his skills and his snaps are more accurate than ever.
On Monday afternoon, the Trojans official Twitter account shared a video of Olson in the team’s locker room showing off his improved snapping ability with a “trick shot” to show off just how accurate he has become.
A water bottle was placed on top of empty water jugs approximately seven-yards behind Olson. He unleashed a snap and sniped the water bottle right off of the makeshift platform.
Here’s the video:

Let’s hope that Olson will be able to see more game action during the 2018 college football season.
The Trojans kick off this year’s campaign on Saturday, Sept. 1 against the UNLV Rebels. Kickoff at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is set for 4:00 p.m. ET on the Pac-12 Network.
