Coach Dan Ragsdale reports that during the November 30 varsity basketball game against Friends Seminary, Will Jacob '16 netted his 1,000th career point in the second half. Will is the fourth player in Browning’s history to reach this auspicious milestone. Athletic Director Andrew West ’92 said, “Having been a Browning student and watching Adam Friedman ’89 score his 1,000th point in 1989 and later coaching both Terrel Phelps ’11 and Sean Brownridge ’07 as they went on to score 1,000 points in 2009 and 2007, respectively, I know how hard it is to score that many points.”

Coach West added, “From the time he was in Pre-primary, I have watched Will zip up and down the court playing whatever game we were playing and always doing it at a lightning-fast pace. He has always had that extra ‘something’ that is hard to explain and even harder to teach. He is fearless and willing to sacrifice his body in order to get to the basket; he always gives it his all. Outside of basketball, Will is also quite the soccer and baseball player as well as recreational tennis player. I look forward to keeping in touch as fellow alumni. Congrats, Will!”
