"Jake's just an awesome competitor," Cirovski said of the River Hill graduate. "Grew up in Maryland, loves the state, loves the program. Has always been a guy who if you give him 10 seconds, it's going to be the best 10 seconds you're going to get. If it's 30 minutes, you get 30 minutes of great effort. He's really endeared himself to the players, the coaches, the fans. I can tell that as soon as I send him to the scorer's bench to put him in, there's a buzz with The Crew [Maryland's student fan group]. They're all excited for Jake to come onto the field, and he always gives us a spark.
