He is a member of the BHS Half-ton, yes HALF TON, weightlifting club, which combines the weight of the deadlift, bench press, and front squat.
Beyond Jack’s football accomplishments, Jack is a BHS Old Colony League baseball all-star, lettering every year since freshman year. He also plays baseball for Team Cape Cod and played in the World Series in Ephrata, Washington this summer.
