We are thrilled to have Jake Rother join the Platform Team! Jake started his college tennis career at Indiana University as a student-athlete before transferring to the University of Texas at San Antonio. While at UTSA, Jake won the Conference USA Championship in 2014 – 2015 and had a season-high team ranking of 48. In 2016 Jake graduated with a bachelors degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies with a focus in Kinesiology.
Jake has coached at very high-profile colleges. These include Saint Marys (CA), Montana State University, University of San Francisco and Havard. His college career did not just include coaching student-athletes but also recruiting internationals, organising competitions against other colleges, and managing players. Jake has now stepped away from the college system and is based in San Diego. He is a Head Professional at the Barnes Tennis Center located in San Diego. Jake networks with a number of college coaches and college athletes often use his training facility.
Regarding joining the Platform Team, Jake said “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Amrit and the athletes at Platform Sports! I am hoping to help as many athletes realise their collegiate dreams are possible.”
We make sure we have the best people networking our athletes, and we are very proud and excited to have Jake on board. Let’s go!
