“Jacob, this season, has been one of the best leaders and players to ever play in the Macon Academy East program. His work ethic and passion for the game was remarkable, and how he led by example everyday was the catalyst for us being 25-7 and State Runner Ups this season. Jacob told me before the season started, he wanted to leave a legacy here at Macon and make an impact not only on the court but also in the school. With his dazzling ball handling skills, to his amazing stop and pop jump shot I believe he did just that. I’m so blessed to have coached him this season, such a great young man of character and a true servant leader, Jacob will do some amazing things to better our society.” 𝗖𝗼𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗻 𝗚𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘀
