Education and early life

Jacob was raised in Lansing, Michigan, as his family moved there not long after he was born; he respects his family’s privacy and rarely speaks about them in public, but it’s believed that his father’s a high school football coach and his mother a housewife. Jacob’s believed to have three siblings, though he’s yet to confirm this.

Jacob fell in love with football while still attending a local elementary school, but it was only upon enrolling at local high school in 2004 that he began thinking about pursuing a career as an athlete; besides football, Jacob also played basketball and baseball during his teenage years.
