Blind Player Reaching for His Dream With USC
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jake Olson is a step closer to his dream of playing football at Southern California. But he has a unique challenge. Olson is completely blind. He was a long-snapper in high school. Yesterday, the college freshman worked out with the Trojans during his first official practice. USC coach Steve Sarkisian says he's "proud of the work" Olson has done. The coach says "Jake is just part of the team like the other freshmen." Sarkisian expects Olson to make it into a game, but is not sure when.
