Jack started playing lacrosse during his freshman year in high school, and absolutely fell in love with the sport! He started as a FOGO/Middie his first year and then moved to Attack. Jack played year-round, travelling during the summer seasons with the Great Plains team, True Lacrosse, and FCA Lacrosse. He also had the opportunity to play in tournaments on the East Coast numerous times. After graduating high school he wanted to stay involved with the Jags team, so he coached the next year.
After a few years away from the sport, Jack helped coach youth league clinics before joining the coaching staff at Olathe South as an assistant JV coach.
Jack's goal as a coach is to help the players love the sport as much as he does!
