USC long-snapper Jake Olson has officially submitted his name into the Trojans’ 2018 quarterback competition.
Although he is completely blind, Olson played two years of high school football in his native Orange County. He has worked out with the Trojans since 2015, enrolling at the school with a scholarship for physically challenged athletes and gradually persuading his USC coaches and teammates that his dream is far more than a stunt.
The Eagles will make more plays in the slot with Nelshon Agholor working on former Eagle Eric Rowe, and the Patriots will see Danny Amendola cool off against Patrick Robinson. Overall, not much will separate the offense explosiveness. And with weather not being a factor, the game likely will come down to the final possession.
In the end of a close, somewhat high-scoring game, it’s easier to trust the steady Brady over the streaky Foles.
Miami cornerback Malek Young’s football career is over, after the sophomore suffered a neck injury in the Hurricanes’ loss to Wisconsin in the Capital One Orange Bowl.
While we’re disappointed that Malek’s football career is over, his health is our top priority, head coach Mark Richt said. Malek is a terrific young man, one who I’m confident will go on to accomplish great things. He will remain on full scholarship and we will support him every step of the way.
The door is still open to find some common ground. I understand addressing the offensive line is one of their main priorities this offseason. In the meantime, I will explore my other options and see what path God leads me on. My main goal remains the same: to win a Super Bowl championship with a great team, which I also believe we have in Minnesota.
