An original Father - Son pick up for Labrador and Nth Melbourne fan, Jake has come across to try his luck at Broady. Might be that one J. Field influenced that decision given Jake was in the GC Scorpions squad in 2011. He has played under 18s and Magoos with the Tigers and looking to enjoy his footy with a view to displacing anyone who is complacent about holding a spot in the Ones. Tends to modesty we thinks.
Jake's Dad was a legend in Tasmanian footy circles but Jake took up that culturally repugnant activity most call soccer except for rice eaters who fancy the World Game as its heritage. Of slender frame and a short tape - we reckon he is more than 187 tall - he will build his frame to be a disgustingly useful aussie rules utility/on-baller. It will be exciting to follow his development. There is clear intent in his eyes.
Having completed a TAFE course on fitness, Jake is currently a casual worker looking for a part time position that pays around $5k/week with one week on and one week off.
Working very hard in 2012 pre-season and we think he has been present at all sessions.
Fieldsy has got inside his head too much. Guess who he supports and dreams of while managing the local IGA shelves.
