USC’s Blind Long Snapper Auditions For Starting QB Job With This Skills Tape (VIDEO)
Jake Olsen made headlines during USC’s first game of the season by playing center during an extra point. That in itself is not impressive, but the fact that Jake Olsen is blind makes the story a little more compelling.
Well, with Sam Darnold heading to the NFL, Jake’s seizing the opportunity to compete for the team’s starting QB gig next season with this awesome mixtape of highlights that shows he can fire the ball downfield better than most.

Jake has been blind since age 12, and given his performance thus far, I wouldn’t count him out of this competition.
I mean, if he’s a package deal with the dog, I know several casual fans who would become USC diehards in a matter of seconds.
