I want to symbolize the college athlete as a dream that every american kid sees. I never forgot my targets even when everyone else has. I want to represent the idea that people with passion can achieve they're dreams. I am always open to new opportunities. I am on a mission and this very specific quest. I want to finally show the world what Jake Lord can do. I wasn't the best student yet I want to make my mark in the world. I have this fire to pursue playing sport in college, it could of been a thousand different things but I use my 24 hours everyday wisely to prepare myself for anything, It is just the matter of who from the next level will realize how much better I get everyday and see my potential. The bottom line is I strive to be better everyday and playing sports in college is how I express that belief.

I lead by my words before each game this year by a motivational speech of putting football in perspective and making my teammates realize how much we have and being thankful. This can be called a "pump-up" or "pre-game hype", in the moment I was just being myself and expressing myself through speech.
Athletics are my passion and the journey I am on has no worries of distractions because I love the core values of my sport. I do not think about anything else than getting done what I need to get done the way it needs to get done.

The end of my Junior year, I also distributed some surveys about the correlation between faculty and student beliefs and opinions on everything from using iPads instead of textbooks always to implementing more creative learning into education. This has started to become a little bit of a thing and something people look forward to and I will be passing the legacy on to let it grow with a couple of junior leaders. I plan to bring this very well liked idea to where I go.
Community service is important to me because...
If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart
Simply put, community service sets the spark to the flame and I use my goals and passions to fuel the fire.
