Jakob Bissett is a senior and plays on the varsity baseball team.

“I have been playing baseball for 13 years now, I’m pretty upset that this is my last year of high school baseball,” says Bissett.

Jakob starts on the varsity squad; catcher, pitcher, 3rd base, and shortstop. But normally he is in the gap at shortstop.

“I really look up to Bryce Harper as a baseball player; he overcomes adversity and motivates me to play harder just like he does,” Bissett told me.

Jakob is looking forward to playing at PNC this year, and for you that don’t know that is the Pittsburgh Pirates home field. He can’t wait for the bus rides home from the games because this is where things tend to get pretty funny.

“One big memory from my baseball career was going to the WPIAL Class A playoffs my freshman year,” said Bissett.

Jakob’s older brother and family is who inspires him to play baseball. His older brother Josh was a part of the team that ended the play off birth drought for the team.

Bissett is really looking forward to all the memories baseball gives him, he is a 3 year letter-man for the team.
