#5 Egregiously Omitted Summer Story: JOB has foot surgery
Poor Jake O'Brien can't catch a break... unless you mean a bone in his foot.
He's stuck with this BU program through a lot. We forgave him for attending BC High and in the end accepted him as one of our own. He was a Dennis Wolff guy, and after a fantastic freshman year almost transferred when Wolff was fired. He didn't progress as much as we hoped under Pat Chambers, and was hurt for the second half of last year. When BU made it's memorable title run, Jake was stuck sitting on the sidelines in a suit and tie.
Sadly, that's where Jake will be as BU attempts to defend that title. He's gone under the knife to have surgery to work on that foot again.
The team is going to miss Jake's leadership this year - if not for him sitting out, I'd have predicted BU to finish in first place. This definitely hurts our chances at a repeat.
But, he sounds committed to recovery and playing again next year, so here's hoping we can keep this success going another 2 years, and give JOB a chance to celebrate on the floor with his teammates.
