All right. Well, in this morning's "Open Mike," a high school football star who has overcome incredible odds just to be on the field. Let's take a look at him in action. Now, the amazing thing about this video, is that you'd never know it. But he's legally blind. And Eric joins us now to tell us his story. Eric, come on out, buddy. How are you doing? We were looking at the video. You are perfect with your snaps. But what inspired you to play football? I always loved the game when since I grew up. And I wanted to be a part of it. And just wanted to play. You look at yourself as a trend setter. Your coach is working with a few other guys. And he said you're a trend setter. How do you feel about that? I don't think of it as a trend setter. But it's good that kids are doing it and overcoming their own -- and playing the sport they love also. You make it look so easy. I almost feel like I can do it. But I know I'm not any good. I tried it. I've tried it. Try to practice being a better football player. And that's one of the worst things. It's harder than it looks. I'm curious, if you can show me how to do it. Can you snap it to me? Yeah. You can do it? Yeah. I heard you are very powerful. Yeah. We're over here laughing. Everybody else is laughing at me because I heard you're very powerful. And I am scared. Okay? I was not known as a guy who can catch the football. That's why I tackle people. Are you going to be gentle? Yeah, sure. All right. Come on, man. Get ready. You guys are cheering now. Please. Oh. You had a great snap. Thank you. Are you okay? Well, you know -- If you dream it, it will come true. Give me a minute. We can all see why you have a walk-on offer at tulane. Yeah. And I'm telling you now, whoever is back there, catching that ball, you better watch out.
