Personal

Experience at Junior College and NCAA (power-5) DI levels; consistent quality at-bats; good balance of discipline and aggression at the plate; consistent glove in the field at multiple IF positions; infectious positive energy and approach to life and the game; a natural leader by example

As a hitter, he can handle velocity, offspeed, and being a switch hitter, he can handle both RHP and LHP pitchers. He hits with good power from the left side and gap to gap approach from the right side. Being a former international player myself (2003) German Bundesliga for the Tubingen Hawks, the best attributes Jacob will bring is a love and energy for the game of baseball. – Coach John Hill; Fort Scott Community College

As far as work ethic goes, his is top tier. Jake worked his butt of in everything he did, especially in the weight room. Any extra or optional work our coaching staff provided, you could bet he would be there. Not only that, but his energy was contagious and he would push those around him to elevate their own level. He was our energy leader. – Tai Mitchell; William Jessup University

Thank you for reaching out about Jacob! He is an all-time favorite even though as a coach I am not supposed to have those…LOL Jacob comes from a first class family. His parents are both college professors and wonderful, astute people. Jacob has been instilled with the sense of being a part of something bigger than he is and with that sense, he carries great pride in the organization he represents at any given time. He would be a GREAT ambassador for any team that signs him. As a player, Jacob is very talented and can play all 3 INF positions with good arm strength, lateral movements with good range. As a hitter, he can handle velocity, offspeed, and being a switch hitter, he can handle both RHP and LHP pitchers. He hits with good power from the left side and gap to gap approach from the right side. Being a former international player myself (2003) German Bundesliga for the Tubingen Hawks, the best attributes Jacob will bring is a love and energy for the game of baseball. He will be a tremendous asset to the club as a whole. Jacob will work phenomenally well with the younger kids on the younger teams and be positive and excited to do so. I have personally offered Jacob a position on our staff so you can feel comfortable with me saying his knowledge, passion and communication skills are top notch. In review, he will be a VERY good player for your club’s top team and he will pass down his knowledge, enthusiasm and love for the game to your younger teams, and he will be a fan and teammate favorite.

I coached Jake in junior college 2014-2016. As far as work ethic goes, his is top tier. Jake worked his butt of in everything he did, especially in the weight room. Any extra or optional work our coaching staff provided, you could bet he would be there. Not only that, but his energy was contagious and he would push those around him to elevate their own level. He was our energy leader. An example, our head coach's wife was the head volley ball coach at the community college so we would often have to attend the vball games as a team. While most kids would just want to sit there on their phones, Jake would lead chants, like the "I believe" chant before the game, and got everyone engaged. He brought energy to everything, not just to those that had to do with baseball or his own career. He is very smart, was as low maintenance as one can be academically. About as good of a kid and family as you can find, tremendous foundation of values. Never had an ounce of doubt about his character or he wasn't doing what he was supposed to be doing. Just an overall good dude. On the field, Jake has always been a student of the game, in many ways he was his own best coach. He had a plan of action and did everything he could to research and learn about the game to take him to the next level.
