TUCKER HEAD COACH FRANKLIN STEPHENS  "Jake is one of those guys coaches want in their program. You feel like you have an extra coach on the field when he is out there. He knows his responsibilities and those of everybody else.

"Jake has plenty of natural talents, and plays the game aggressively with great emotion. He's a tremendous leader, one of our guys that other players looked to for leadership.

"Like most (signees), he still needs to get bigger and stronger, and keep improving his agility and flexibility, but Jake will do that because that's who he is."
