Many may remember an ESPN story done on a high school long-snapper, who played football. Oh, and he just so happened to be blind.

That same long-snapper laced them up for the USC Trojans Saturday during their spring game at the Coliseum.

Jake Olson executed perfect snap during a field goal, earning a standing ovation from the crowd.

Olson was born with retinoblastoma, a rare eye cancer that begins in the retina, costing him his sight in both eyes before he was able to turn 13.

He is currently a redshirt freshman with the team.
