Blind longsnapper Jake Olson played for USC this weekend

Jake Olson of Orange Lutheran High School (Calif.) lost his left eye to cancer when he was just 10 months old. At age 12, after a long battle to keep the rest of his vision intact, he lost his right eye as well.

So, what'd he do? Played high school football, of course. Then? He joined USC football last year. Not as a fan or honorary member, but as a player for the USC Trojans.

This weekend Olson delivered snaps in a USC spring game.
