Notable: Jack was a constant starting at shortstop for the Wildcats program over the past three seasons, helping West to three summer championships and the Greater Neuse River 4A Conference championship in 2012. It was all about going out there and playing good team ball for us, he said. Playing with your best friends, theres nothing better than that for team chemistry, which we had a lot of. He says improving his strength and adding a little more speed are the keys for him at the college level. Although Jack played short for the Wildcats for three seasons, he projects to play second base in college.
West Johnston baseball coach Mike Jacobs: Defensively, there is none better than Jack. Offensively, he can be a little streaky but hes always improving. Hes a true student of the game.
