Tulane long snapper becomes first legally blind player in FBS game

Tulane's final touchdown in a 45-31 victory over conference foe UCF accomplished two goals. First, it sealed the Green Wave's win and second, it opened the way for long-snapper Aaron Golub to make history.

With 8:20 left in the game, Golub snapped the ball during a successful extra point attempt, making him the first legal blind person to play in an FBS game.

Golub, a sophomore, has no vision in his right eye and limited vision in his left.

"The reason why I played him is because he works so hard. Every morning when I’m up, and as you know, I get up early, he’s in the weight room, and he’s working," Tulane coach Curtis Johnson said, according to Tulane's website. "I would like to play him as much as I can, because that’s what you do; you reward kids when they work. This kid works, and he is just like everybody else. I’m going to play him as much as I can.”
