Club Baseball: This tall, goofy lefty is coming off a strong performance last year, as he carried the team late in the season with his consistency at the plate and dominance on the mound. He believes he should have gotten the win against UT in the Fall 2012 tournament, but sadly he did not after being pulled after the 4th in a tied game. His consistency and pitching style made him especially effective as a reliever early in his career, and he will most likely throw against the best hitting teams on the schedule. As an upperclassmen, Jake broke into the starting rotation, and will be a key starter in 2015. Arguably has the best nickname on the team, “Hurricane Jake”, for his lightning-fast swing.
