Inklings Web Sports Editor Bobby Jacowleff, ‘14 is, in a word, unstoppable.

With two sports captain positions under his belt, and a demanding Inklings position, his drive and commitment alone are impressive. But more notable than Bobby’s success is his ability to fight through anything in the way of his goals.

Bobby may seem nonchalant about his abilities, there’s nothing to be casual about.

He is a varsity football cornerback, a captain for indoor and outdoor track, and has already been recruited for track by universities including Emory and Amherst.

More importantly, his achievements haven’t come without obstacle.

Jacowleff received Tommy John surgery freshman year after overuse of his arm in football caused a tendon in his elbow to displace a piece of bone.

This injury failed to hinder Bobby. He soon returned to football, and when he couldn’t continue baseball, instead of just giving up, he turned to track and realized his incredible talent for it.

Bobby’s perseverance and determination for success extend from the sports fields to the newsroom. He balances sports practices with the demanding duties of a web editor.

His favorite article to write was on Tom Milone, the first high school student in Connecticut to be drafted.

The piece required extensive investigation and direct source coverage, but again Bobby’s diligence was evident in his thorough reporting.

Despite his journalistic and athletic achievements, Jacowleff’s pride is concentrated elsewhere.

“I’ve never had chapped lips or a paper cut,” he proclaims proudly. “And I’ve never even tried to avoid them.”
