TIFFANY ON PEELE
2020 – “Improvement is not always easily noticeable, but this is not the case with Jack.  Due to his intrinsic drive, Jack propels himself forward with an absolute commitment to being the best student and teammate.  His speed separates him, but it is the evolution of his shooting skills and the grasp of our offensive schemes that has allowed this former walk-on to play a prominent role in our program.” 2019 – “No sophomore slump here – quite the opposite as he has noticeably elevated his skills and awareness, proving to be a reliable option in Coach Kirwan’s arsenal.” 2018 – “He did it, and it was not by the proverbial skin of his teeth.  This walk-on earned a spot on our roster due to effective dodging, accurate shooting and personal persistence.  Jack quickly blended in with the men of our program, proving he belonged due to his play on the field and his unselfish demeanor.  Having played both attack and midfield in high school, Jack can be useful in multiple ways for us but will focus primarily as a midfielder.”
