Jake set numerous school and state records and was named the top high school swimmer in the nation by the National High School Coaches Association.

Jake won four Ohio state swimming championships, setting records along the way. Individually, he was Ohio state champion in the 100 breastroke and the 200 IM in a state-record time of 1:43.99.

Jake is a major swimmer on the national and international scene and swims for the Mason Manta Rays as his club team. Last summer as a member of Team USA competing in the Junior Pan Pacific Games in Fiji, Jake brought home a silver medal in the 400-meter individual medley competing against some of the best swimmers in the world.
