Jake began his football career in 2007 with the Transcona Nationals. In 2012, He then moved on to play for the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen of the Winnipeg High School Football League (WHSFL).

Over the course of his seven year career, Jake has garnered one Team MVP and three Offensive MVP Awards.

The most memorable moment of Jake’s gridiron career came last season as the Clansmen opened their 2013 campaign with an decisive victory.

“We proved that we were a team to be scared of, a team that shouldn’t be taken lightly,” explained Jake of the over 50 point Clansmen victory.

The Clansmen receiver recognizes the many people who have contributed to his athletic success.

“To be honest, there aren’t just one or two inspirational people in my life,” says Jake. “My family, friends, and my other family that I see three times a week on the football field are always there for me and I am always learning from them”.

Football has always played an important role in Jake’s life and he hopes that he can continue his playing career at the CIS level. Going into his senior year, he understands the need to improve, show up, and stand out.

“I’m going to push myself to become a better football player, and a better teammate,” says Jake.  “All of this can be accomplished with dedication and motivation, and I have both.”

“If that means getting up early to workout, or go for a run, then I will. I believe it’s all about the things you do off the field that make you better every day”.

The gifted, multi-purpose athlete plans to utilize his offseason to sharpen his football skill set.

“I’m going to practice, looking to get better every time I step on the field,” says the Murdoch Mackay Senior. “I plan to workout and do some speed training, in order to improve”.

Jake’s goal to achieve success at the secondary level involves both football and academics. Although he would prefer staying at home to play at the CIS level, moving out of province is not out of the question either. Any opportunity to continue his athletic passion would be welcomed.

“I have not committed to any team or school yet,” says Jake. “I am honestly considering any school.”

“I am open to moving; however, I would enjoy playing football close to home with my family. Apart from football, I would like to attend university in order to obtain an education degree and become a teacher or a contractor”.

Thus far, the talented Clansman has enjoyed the recruitment process. Essentially, Jake is trying to get his name on the CIS radar by putting up big performances, improving his game, and talking with scouts and coaches.

“I have talked to a few junior teams across Canada and a couple CIS schools as well, just to get my name out there” says Jake.

Extending his football playing days has becomes Jake’s primary motive, and serves as an inspirational force driving the young recruit

“If I’m not playing football or basketball I’m with family or friends,” says Jake.  “For almost eight years, football has been my life 24/7 and I could not be happier.”
