Jake Baker ’14 Sport: Soccer Hometown: McMinnville Major: Political science Why Linfield: “I had confidence the college would address all my needs academically, athletically and socially. It has proven to be worthwhile.” ’ c a t t r a c k s Goals for senior year: “If I am continuously improving on the soccer field and in the classroom, then I will be happy and that comes down to working hard and paying attention to detail.” Favorite achievement: “Being elected ASLC vice president and captain of the soccer team are my biggest accomplishments. It is a great and humbling feeling to have people put their confidence in you.” Balancing athletics, academics and politics: “I am efficient with my time and have a desire to work hard and continuously improve myself and my environment.” Favorite aspect of Linfield: “The different people I am surrounded by day in and day out – professors, fellow students and administrators who push me to become better academically and athletically. More important, they push me to become a better person.” Advice for student athletes: “Never take a second off. Whether it is on the field or in the classroom, hard work is not something you can just pick up overnight. Push yourself and test your limits, but don’t forget to enjoy life and enjoy the end results of your hard work.” Fall 2013 l i n f i e l d m a g a z i n e - 2 3 Duey, Hickman join athletic training staff Diagnosis and treatment of athlete injuries is under new supervision this fall.
