Jack Sicurella is athletically versatile, playing golf, hockey, and baseball, but his talent goes beyond his ability to juggle three sports, and instead, it’s his hard work that has gotten him to where he is today.
Most would guess that the high school junior has been hitting golf balls his entire life, but Sicurella only started playing golf two years ago and he has already been named captain of the team and conference All Star for next season.
It all started when Sicurella was looking for a fall sport to play. Knowing that some of his friends had been on the golf team from their freshman and sophomore years, his interest was piqued in the sport, so he did what all good athletes do…he practiced. Picking up a golf club for the first time, he spent the entire summer before his junior year practicing every free moment he had. It didn’t take him long to realize that he loved the sport and soon he was landing himself a spot on the high school team.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
My biggest accomplishment was this past golf season when I was named captain of the team for next season and named conference All Star.
How do you stay in shape for golf and keep yourself sharp in the off-season?
I get better by playing every day. I’ll play anywhere from nine to 36 holes and if I can’t go outside and play, I putt and chip for as long as I can. I love to play the sport because whenever I’m playing it, I’m always enjoying it and I can never get enough.
What is your favorite subject?
Math would be my favorite subject in school. I hope to be an accountant someday.
Who is your role model?
My parents. They are very supportive of everything I do.
Do you have any career/college goals?
I would like to get a degree in accounting, and I want to play college golf somewhere.
