2019 Player Profiles Day 12: Jake Lanning 2021•Berwick•OT @jakelann65 @berwickdawgs

Written by: on Monday, August 12th, 2019


I am Jake Lanning, class of 2021, and I’m just trying to play some ball.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?

My favorite sports star is definitely JJ Watt. He is my favorite because he is a great football player while also being an active member of his community. He also is a fighter and faces adversity almost every year, which I find very admirable.

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?

I would watch The Blind Side. That movie shows how much a person goes through and the determination someone has to make it to the next level.

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like?

Someone I want to be like is my mother. She is a very determined woman and I’ve never met someone who has worked as hard as her.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?

My go to activity is definitely Swing Choir at school. We dance and sing in that class and you’ll find many football players in there. It’s a great time and I get to spend more time with my boys on the team.
