Jacob was a successful football player growing up, and was a member of the 6th-8th grade city football champions. He figured there were fewer injuries in wrestling than football, and took a liking to the Greco-Roman form. By the time he enlisted in 2016, he had won a college national championship, was a three-time NCAA All American, and had earned residence at the Olympic Training Center. He has continued his ascent with WCAP.

My parents put me in wrestling when I was five years old because I had way too much energy, and here I am today.
