Congratulations to Jake on his college choice and good luck in the future!
Saint Andrew’s School
University of Tampa
South Florida Swordfish
Why did you choose this college?
Tampa has been my first choice for many years. They have a great marine science program that I have always wanted to be a part of and when I was offered to play at Tampa it gave me another amazing reason to go there.
What are your first memories of the sport?
When I first started playing I had to play with my older brother who is two years older than me because at my age I was too young.
What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?
The most surprising part of the recruiting process was the wait. I always thought it happened really quickly when a school shows interest in you but you just have to be patient.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
I would like to thank my parents and coaches for pushing me because I went through tough times and was debating quitting at one point but they helped me push through and none of this would be possible without them.
