The opening weekend of the college football season is not yet over, but we already have our best moment of the weekend, if not the entire season. At the end of USC’s closer than expected victory against Western Michigan, blind Trojan long snapper Jake Olson got the moment he’s been waiting years for as he got the opportunity to snap his team’s final extra point:

Olson, who went blind when he was 12, has spent the past three seasons with USC, primarily working with the practice squad. Though he has gotten in on the Trojans’ spring games in the past, this was his first real game action with the team.
What a moment, and one neither Olson, his family, or college football fans are going to forget anytime soon.
