WATCH: Blind teenager makes his high school football team

Jake Olson is no stranger to football.

Or to ESPN's College Game Day broadcasts.

Jake was a guest on the show back on New Years Day 2010, picking bowl game winners.

Jake is blind. He lost sight in one eye when he was 10 months, and lost sight in his remaining functional eye when he was 12.

Even though he is not sighted, Jake's faith is strong ... and has led him to places most would not go -- including beating the odds to put on pads and become a member of the football team in Orange Lutheran High in California.

On Saturday, Jake was on ESPN's College Game Day once again, as his story was told.


 

Jake was also featured on Fox Sports recently, as well.
