Recruit Profile
Passionate for lacrosse. Vocal, first on, last off the field. Coachable, leads by example. Loves sailing, skiing, skeet and school.

I am a highly coachable player with a drive to succeed and be a better lacrosse player. Excellent hand speed, with good foot work. I have been playing goalie since the 3rd grade and have been involved with the sport year round ever since. I am a very patient clearer with great field vision and a high Lax IQ. Over the past 2 years I have volunteered over 40 hours per year at Arc Value Village, Feed my Starving Children, and my local school system. Since sixth grade I have volunteer coached our local 5, 6 and 7 year old youth with BYLA, my local lacrosse organization.

From the first time Jake stepped between the pipes, he has exhibited all the attributes of an exceptional keeper. He is a defensive leader, he's leveled headed, he tracks the ball well, he has quick hands, a solid first step and can turn transition.

Jake is a strong goalie that can see the ball well and has a great outlet pass. He is a leader on the defense and knows the game very well. He is a good ball-stopper and great at leading the clear.

Jake has a very open personality and is very calm and even-keel. Good or bad, he steps into the crease for the next faceoff as if the score is 0-0. He is easy to talk to, easy to coach and a good team player.

Pierce Guderski

Jake makes coaching easy: He demonstrates composure, empathy, and willingness to learn, among other skills that make him a standout teammate and player to coach. He is composed, confident, and consistent in cage and makes smart and impressive decisions in the clear. A great addition to any program.

Jake brings an unmatched energy to the position and communicates the defense and clearing game at a collegiate level. His hand speed and his ability to get pipe to pipe contribute to his limitless ceiling. Jake is well respected by his teammates as he displays exemplary character.
