Jack Seals, a rising senior defenseman for the Servite Friars, is the Athletes Choice Workhorse of the Week.
Seals has had a breakout summer. He was one of only 12 Orange County players from the 2018 class selected to represent Team California at the Brine National Lacrosse Classic. He was also chosen as an all-star at the Trilogy 24 Recruiting Tournament in Towson, Maryland in June.
“It’s obvious Jack is taking his game to the next level,” Arkison said. “His work ethic is very strong, he works on the details and it looked like last week that work paid off from back east to here in the OC.”
Tom O’Leary, head coach of Servite and the Angel City Hounds has watched Seals develop and knows that his Workhorse style of play can change games.
“Just this past weekend at the Tinseltown Throwdown, we were playing in a close championship game” said O’Leary by email. “Jack was matched up on one of their top attackmen. We needed the ball to try and tie the game up. Jack de-sticked this attackman twice in three minutes, each time providing us the ball. The second time, Jack pushed transition from coast-to-coast and scored a goal with his off hand.”
“Jack is a very smart, aggressive player with a great desire to compete and learn,” O’Leary continued. “I have witnessed Jack’s transformation from a rookie varsity player his sophomore year, to a takeaway pole teams try to avoid. He is a true young man of character with all the work he puts in away from Servite. Jack’s transformation has been a pleasure to watch. Servite is a better school/program for having him involved.”
Seals in currently amidst the recruiting the process and plans to attend a school where he can compete for a championship on a yearly basis.
