Newton High School senior Aaron Golub is legally blind, and yet he has been offered a spot on Tulane University’s football team where he will hopefully one day have a chance to play in Division 1.
Aaron is currently a long snapper – meaning he is the player required to snap the ball long distances – and practices every morning before school and on weekends.
His coach Ted Dalicandro told CBS Boston “He’s only had one bad snap in the last two years he’s snapped for us. He’s the best long snapper I’ve seen on the high school level.”
Aaron’s commitment to football is a wonderful reminder that practice makes perfect and sometimes even makes disabilities irrelevant. He says “If you set your mind to it you can do it. There’s nothing you can’t accomplish if you really want to do it.”
