Jake Olson uses USC's Pro Day to raise funds for retinoblastoma research

By this time, we've all surmised that Jake Olson's time as a Trojan has been nothing short of inspiring in every way.

Take USC's Pro Day on Wednesday as the latest example. The blind long snapper showed out during his bench press session — 17 reps at 225 pounds, no less — to raise funds for retinoblastoma, the very disease that took away his sight. Proceeds he has raised, more than $45,000 as of this writing, will benefit Uplifiting Athletes, Inc.

Afterwards, a young fan who drew inspiration from Olson greeted him in a touching moment. Kudos to you, Jake Olson
