USC football: Blind long snapper Jake Olson gets standing ovation at spring game

In a truly touching moment, USC long snapper Jack Olson, who is blind, received a standing ovation from the Trojan faithful during the team's spring game on Saturday.

Olson came in and delivered perfect snaps on two field goal attempts. After the second made field goal, Olson's teammates embraced him and the USC fans in attendance stood up in applause.

Take a look:

Kudos to Olson's USC family for showing him their support on Saturday and ever since he walked on the team last season.

Olson, who grew up a huge USC fan, has been blind since he was 12.  

ESPN's Shelley Smith chronicled Olson's incredible journey toward becoming a Trojan last September.
