Jake Hudson, seen making a tackle this season, was not going to miss his senior season. 'I knew I was going to get back out there. I just was not going to let it happen. My senior year, I was definitely going to find a way back out there somehow.'
Jake Hudson has spent his life beating the odds.
If you ask him, he’ll tell you his entire life is a miracle.
At the age of four, he had a brain tumor removed which cost him the vision in his right eye.
The loss of vision never stopped him from his athletic goals.
For Hudson, his sport was football. In his youth days, he wore goggles on the field to protect any potential injury to his his left eye.
The football field was a place he could escape whatever may have been going on around him and just focus on the game.
At Tesoro High School, he excelled and started every game last season as a junior.
During the offseason following his junior year, however, tragedy struck.
Hudson’s life was nearly snatched from beneath his 6-foot-4 frame.
