Jake, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior wide receiver for College of Idaho, had a career-best six catches for 62 yards in the Yotes’ 33-30 home loss to Rocky Mountain last Saturday in Caldwell. Jake played in one game during the COVID-19 shortened spring season, making his collegiate debut versus Montana State University-Northern. He was named to the Frontier Conference All-Academic Team and was an NAIA Scholar-Athlete. Jake used the 2019 season as a redshirt year. He won the Palisadian-Post Cup Award as the outstanding senior athlete at Palisades High in 2018-19, earning All-Western League honors in football and baseball. As a senior for the Dolphins he led the offense with 38 receptions for 600 yards and six touchdowns and added a team-high six interceptions, five pass deflections and 43 tackles as a defensive back. That spring he was Palisades’ starting center fielder and helped the Dolphins reach the City Open Division baseball final at Dodger Stadium.
