Comments from Coach McCulloch
'Jake is a tremendous example of perseverance. Jake was not a starter on our defensive front but played very key roles for us in his career. His ability to play multiple positions (including the most important on any team - longsnapper) made us a better team. He is the ultimate team player who gave everything he had to the program. There is no doubt in my mind he is going to be a GREAT football coach.'
