Eighteen year old Jacob White attends Dundee High School. He plays defensive back for the Vikings football team. In addition to football, he also plays baseball and basketball. When it comes to favorite teams, Jacob follows the Michigan State University Spartans.
Jacob, who carries a 3.99 GPA, states that Math is his favorite subject because he loves learning about numbers.
Jacob lives at home with his Mom, Cindy and his sister, Morgan. They also share their home with their pet cat. His hobbies are hanging with friends and winning football games on Fridays.
Upon graduation Jacob plans on attending Michigan State University to pursue a degree in Business. He does not plan on playing football while attending university as he wants to concentrate on his studies.
When asked his advice for students trying to decide whether to participate in a sport is, “Get out of your comfort zone and try something new.”
Varsity Football Defensive Back Coach  Bryan Hammond says, “Jake has been a huge surprise for us as a senior. He has really stepped up and played well as a defensive back. He is a student of the game, and prepares very well”
