It was his first goal to go along with his two assists throughout his time playing. He doesn’t get on the scoresheet very often as he’s one of Jersey’s go-to defenders.

Wagner is a Jersey Male Athlete Of The Month.

The three-sport athlete doesn’t get much time off between sports seasons. He mentioned that he also plays basketball in the winter and baseball in the spring, baseball being the sport he says he’s best at.

He had a batting average of .333 through six at-bats last season and made 12 appearances on the mound, mainly in relief. He had a 1-1 record when starting.

It looks like Jacob is going to have a busy senior year, but he wouldn’t have it any other way. He said the thing he likes most about playing all these sports is the friends he’s made along the way.
