TLMM 6-foot-2 guard has become a known name around the state because of his massive scoring out-bursts that helped lead his team to an 18-6 that put him on many of the Class B All State Team lists.

The Trojans missed on the state tournament because of their five point Regional loss hurt but with 18 wins in 24 games there was nothing about the year for Trapper and his teammates to feel badly about.

“High school season was pretty good, our record was 18-6 and got 3rd in region,” Jacobs said.  “We lost to Shiloh in the semis by 5 and we were winning going into the four quarter. I improved my jump shot from mid-range a lot during high school season.”

That mid-range jumper went with many other ways to score as Trapper put up 24.2 points per game building his career total to 1.448 points plus Jacobs averaged 3.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 2.2 steals a game.

“For my senior year I want to get better at attacking the rack and staying balanced,” Trapper explained.  “I think this year in AAU I have gotten better at both those things but I know I can still get better.”

Jacobs competes with the North Dakota Phenom which is a team full of quality guards.  Jacobs is among the best so he expects the best going forward.

“Phenom is going pretty good so far,” Jacobs said.  “We have won some tough games, even though we have been missing guys every weekend, we haven’t had our full team at a tournament yet this year. I think when we have everyone we can be a good team.

“We hope to at least have a winning record at the end of the yaer, and to all improve as players.”

Jacobs is also a really good baseball player but would also really like to play basketball at the next level.

“I have had a couple colleges talk to me, I really want to play somewhere in college, I want to play basketball but would be open to playing baseball, too.”
