Kris O'Dowd Jersey Retired

OVERTIME SIDELINES: Here's more from tonight's half-time ceremony, where the Salpointe Lancers retired former offensive lineman Kris O'Dowd's Jersey tonight at halftime. O'Dowd, from the Class of 2007, went onto to become the first true freshman to start at center for USC. O'Dowd had a special guest with him tonight -- Jake Olson, USC's long snapper who also happens to be blind. Olson made headlines last season when he snapped the final PAT in the Trojans' win over Western Michigan. Olson met O'Dowd, his favorite player, through the Make-A-Wish Foundation 9 years ago. The two became instant friends, and when he made it to USC 6 years later, Olson wore O'Dowd's college number, 61.
