Jake Bennett is receiver set to graduate in 2018.  He started playing the sport at the age of nine.

In the North Shore of Vancouver, Jake joined the GSL North Shore Football League and continued to play at both the peewee and minor levels over the years.

In his grade 8 season, Jake received the MVP award for his middle school football team and in the GSL Jake received Rookie of the Year and several All-Star awards.

Jake is currently playing for the Handsworth Royals of the British Columbia High School Football Association (BCHSFA). His highlight form last season was his first touchdown.

“A 30 yard go route for a touchdown in the pouring rain,” explains Jake.

Jake is excited for another season with the Royals in 2015 where he will be a grade 10 and an even larger part of the junior team.

“I think our team is going to be very good this year,” says Jake. “I love our team spirit and the fun that comes with playing with a great group of guys.

Jake is constantly working to improve as a player, and his training  involves working out at the gym four to five times each week and working on footwork and explosiveness three times each week.

A lot of Jake’s drive to work hard comes from the Royals Head Coach Jay Prepchuck

“Mr. Jay Prepchuck is very influential in my football life,” says Jake.

Currently, the Royals standout is focused on improving his receiving game.

“I need to improve my overall speed and direction chance quickness,” says Jake. “I am also going to focus a lot on catch hardier balls that are not thrown directly at me.”

Jake’s drive to be better goes beyond his personal expectations, as he also encourages his team members saying, “I think we could work harder even during practices to make us even better.”

In terms of the future, Jake hopes to continue growing as a receiver and gaining valuable experience and playing time.

“I hope to get my highlights out to as many schools this year as possible and hopefully go visit as many school as I can,” says Jake.  “I would love to continue on and play football at the next level.”

“That is my dream.”
