WATCH: USC's blind long snapper Jake Olson jumps off the high dive, pokes fun of himself
You have to hand it to Jake Olson, he may be the most popular long snapper in college football history.
USC’s special teams star is back in the news this week but it’s not for a trick shot or anything related to football, it’s for his fearlessness when it comes to the high dive. While many people chicken out when they reach the summit of a jump, Olson just dove right in… so to speak.
Check out the video shared by USC’s official athletics account:
