In the first installment of Patch's new Athlete of the Week feature, Long Branch High School's Jake George is featured.
George is headed to Cornell to wrestle this fall and signed his national letter of intent earlier this month.
Each week we will ask our athlete of the week three questions and print their answers verbatim.
Why did you choose the college you did?
I think Cornell has a great balance, both academically and athletically. Also, my brother going there also altered my decision, somewhat, but I just think it's a great place.
What has been your best sports experience at Long Branch High School so far?
I've had a lot of great experiences playing sports, but I think my most memorable was my freshman year when we won the group title in wrestling. My brother was also on the team and it was a great experience for sure.
What do you plan on studying in college?
I'm not positive yet, I'm going to go in undecided but I'm thinking about something in psychology.
