Jake Olson: Character and Courage Personified!
Jake Olson has been blind since he was 12 years old, but Saturday he opened all of our eyes. In a game between his USC Trojans and Western Michigan, Olson took the field with his special team comrades and long-snapped for the PAT. The snap, as well as the kick, were both successful. Of all the great college football games that were played over the Labor Day weekend, along with all the great individual performances, Jake Olson's college football debut had to be the most inspiring story of all!
