Meet the Bulldog: Jacob Westberry

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Jacob Westberry took a leap of faith when he decided to move across the country and play football at Fresno State - something that wasn't even thought to be possible when he was a child.

As a child, he struggled with expression, with vocalizing himself, and in social situations - leading to a diagnosis when he was young that placed him on the autism spectrum.

But the Florida native became a three-sport athlete in high school, putting up impressive numbers in basketball and baseball - but ultimately deciding to go with football - and heading west.

Now he's the primary long snapper for Fresno State football, though he prefers to fly under the radar.
