This spring Jake has been attending the Don Beebe wide receiver camp, House of Speed. This camp is an intense workout, focusing on exploding off the line, creating separation and of course, great catches. In this video you’ll see Jake blow past a variety of defensive backs and make some great catches. Some of the Dbacks are D1 committed athletes headed to Northwestern and Western Michigan. After camp this is what Don Beebe said about Jake, “Jake is really coming on awesome. I spoke very highly of Jake to the NIU and WMU scouts the other day and said Jake has some great upside. Just keep working hard and things will happen.”

Jake had a great Junior Day visit at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on Friday, April 13th. After tours of the athletic facilities and a meet/greet with Miami’s football staff, he was treated to tour of beautiful Miami’s Campus. The outstanding legacy of Miami coaches and it’s football program is very impressive indeed.
Jake had the opportunity to view football facilities, campus, etc. at Ball State University the very next morning. Jake’s grandfather was a tail back for Ball State in the late 1950′s, so this visit was near and dear to Jake’s heart. Another great MAC school!
Spring Break proved to be the perfect time for Jake to (unofficially) visit the campus and football programs at Rice University in Houston and SMU in Dallas, Texas. The search for the perfect fit begins.
In an effort to get my name and football stats out to more coaches, I joined Berecruited.com today.
