    I didn’t know he moved away from Iowa.

    Makes me want to go back and read that thread where he wrote some letter that went over poorly. I think it’s when Harrison Barnes left Jake’s AAU team.

    That is a challenging life. A full life it seems but challenging. Glad him and his family are doing well.

    Sounds like he is doing well. Maybe getting out of the DSM/Ames area was what he needed. Whether it be due to his condition or whatever else, he alienated a lot of people in the area over the years.

    I liked him since the first time I saw him play in person during Minnesota HS Tournament. He had the high scoring reputation but that night had a bunch of assists from feeding the hot hand of one of his teammates while pasting up his own shot. Can't remember the other kids name but he also played Div 1 later at UNI.

    I don't think I was aware Jake struggled with OCD. Examples cited in that piece, I can't imagine how debilitating it was. He knew it wasn't normal, but couldn't make it stop.

    Liked his career but this may have been my favorite JS game and it stands out as just a fun game in ISU history.

    Fat thumb I guess. Must have hit it while scrolling on the phone. Surprised it doesn’t happen more often.
