Jacob Copeland was aware of his athletic gifts at a young age. Using sports to stay out of the life Pensacola, Florida provided, he excelled at Escambia High School in multiple sports, but the most apparent was his skill on the football field. Jacob had over 2,000 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns on over 100 receptions and gained the attention of multiple Power 5 schools across the nation.
Jacobs’s decision was notorious because his mother walked off ESPN live when Jacob picked the University of Florida over Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, Clemson and Georgia. After Jacobs’s redshirt year, he found himself in a crowded Wide Receiver room year in and year out. Jacob, instead of complaining, worked day in and day out to perfect his craft.
