Jacket Athlete of the Week, January 9

From the coach: Jacob Ziebarth was able to find the back of the net twice in the 4-3 overtime win to secure a third-place finish in the Herb Brooks Winter Classic (Open Division). Jacob is the ultimate team player: He can play forward and defenseman when needed; he distributes the puck to his teammates nicely, and is a leader on and off the ice.

Favorite thing about sports: It’s fun to compete against other people.

How do you prepare for a game or meet?: I mentally prepare for games by thinking about my role and communicating with my teammates.

Highlight of athletic career: Scoring my first varsity hat trick for an overtime win.

Future goals:  Compete at the collegiate level.
