About Jakob

Jakob’s leadership and communication skills were crafted through his roles in several championship athletic programs. As a player, he captained the 3 winningest teams in Mercer University’s school history, capped with a 2014 NCAA Tournament bid and Round 1 upset victory over the #3 seeded Duke Blue Devils—a game that would win Jakob and his teammates an ESPY Award. As a coach, Jakob won a National Championship in 2015 with the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, eventually retiring from his three year coaching stint to pursue a career outside of athletics.

Known for his intellectual reason, thought provoking ideas, and charismatic spirit, Jakob’s content has been offering perspective and thought-at-depth about the difficult questions of our time for nearly a decade.

In addition to his personal accounts, he founded The Master Your Craft Study in 2017, where he operates as Producer, Editor, Writer, and On-Air Personality. The MYC Study is an online publication of athletic excellence, where Jakob and his team conduct research, record podcasts, and curate content for coaches, athletes, and trainers.
