Aaron Golub is legally blind. But that hasn't stopped him from being highly successful on the football field. He convinced Coach Ted Dalicandro of Newtown South High School in Newton, Massachusetts to let him on the team. He plays a role that doesn't require precise vision: long snapper. That means that he throws the ball backward between his legs to the quarterback.

Aaron has been training extensively under Chris Rubio, a professional coach who specializes in long snapping. He practices every morning and on weekends with a net. Aaron has done so well that Tulane University's Green Wave, a Division 1 team, has signed him.
