Jacob: I first got into playing basketball in second grade from a friend I played a tournament with and I really liked it so I kept playing from there. 

VYPE: Here is your chance to say hello, goodbye or thank you to anyone you wish. 

Jacob: I want to say thank you to my mom, dad, my family, and teammates for being there and continuing to push me and driving me to a good path even when I felt like I couldn’t but they never gave up on me and so I thank them so much for that.
