BBK: Jacobsen Leads Cougars

BBK: Jacobsen Leads Cougars
VIBORG, SD - The Viborg-Hurley Cougars are undefeated on the short season and expectations are high for the new co-op. One of the reasons for the high hopes is a strong veteran presence led by senior Cory Jacobsen...who has taken it upon himself to play a bigger role on and off the floor.

Ever since he was in 8th grade Viborg senior Cory Jacobsen has had no trouble doing what he does best, score.
Jacobsen has recorded over 1,700 career points, but heading into this season he had something else on his mind.

"Being a better leader and being better vocally and being a role model for this team," Viborg/Hurley Senior Cory Jacobsen said.

Jacobsen's actions on the floor have been pretty easy for his teammates to look up to.
Known as just a shooter in his younger days, Jacobsen isn't one to just shoot until his arms sore.
He's worked to develop into the total package.

"To start with he was just a 3 point shooter but he's worked hard to develop his game and beat people off the dribble and he can post you up," Coach Galen Schoenefeld said.

"Obviously he knows how to score for himself but he knows to be that teammate too where he can get guys their points and their minutes," Senior forward Brandon DeVries said.

For teammates like Devries, Jacobsen's development as an all around player means more opportunities and plenty of open shots for the other four guys on the floor.

"If he sees me open he's going to get it to me if he's guarded. If he's open I don't mind him taking that shot because most of the time he's going to make it," Devries said.

This season presents a different challenge for Jacobsen though.
A new co-op and the move to Class A means tougher competition, but after leading the Cougar football team to a 2nd place finish in their first year....he hopes that success rubs off onto the basketball court.

"We know what it's like to be there and then for football being in the championship there will help us get to that big stage," Jacobsen said.

A stage Jacobsen and the rest of the Cougars won't be shying away from anytime soon.
