Charles “Chuck” Jacobsen 
Senior, Coral Shores 

Senior Charles Jacobsen, in his first season ever playing lacrosse, has been dominating faceoffs for the Hurricanes. He uses his strength and speed to outmaneuver opponents, and when those don’t work, he wills himself to be the best with pure grit. 

“Not only is Chuck always showing great leadership, he is without a doubt going 100% on the practice field and in games,” said head coach Brian Lindback. 

In his most recent performance, Jacobsen scored two of the ’Canes’ six goals, and he has amassed 28 ground balls so far this season. For his positive contributions to the Coral Shores lacrosse team in both gameplay and leadership, Chuck Jacobsen is the Keys Weekly Athlete of the Week.
