Jacob started playing rugby in 2014 during his freshman year at West Point. Before then, he was a basketball and volleyball player, but he was looking for something new and fell in love with the sport. Now a veteran of the Pan American Games, Madrid Sevens, All Army Tournament, and other competitions, Jacob has become an accomplished master and three-time USA Rugby All American. After playing on West Point’s rugby team, he earned a slot on the All-Army Team and now competes with Team USA. He and his team have Olympic gold in Paris as their ultimate goal.
