Aaron Golub was born legally blind but the 17-year old has never let that hold him back, developing into the starting long-snapper of his Newton South's high school football team.

Golub's football career continues on as he recently took his skills to Tulane and earned a preferred walk on spot on the football roster.

From Newton, Massachusetts, Golub has worked hard for two years developing his talents to become a long snapper and his efforts seemed to have paid off as he has found himself a position on a college football team.

Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson commented on his recent addition: "Aaron is a tremendous young man who has not let adversity overcome his desire to fulfill his dreams of playing college football, We look forward to having him as a part of our football program this fall."

Golub continues to defy the odds and his progress will be kept an eye on as stories as enlightening as his are hard to come by.
