Blind long snapper Jake Olson to join Southern Cal football team as walk-on
Jake Olson has been an unofficial member of the Southern California football team since 2009.
After losing his left eye at 10 months, the 12-year-old Olson was about to undergo surgery to remove his right eye and would be blind. Former head coach Pete Carroll invited Olson and his family to a team meeting, and Olson became a fixture at practices and games.
Now six years later, Olson is a USC student with a chance to walk on to the football team as a long snapper.
