COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – Jacob Scherber grew up around wrestling.
His father Jason is a 1995 Saint John’s University graduate who qualified for the NCAA Division III national meet three times during his collegiate career. He then went on to serve as the head coach at Delano (Minn.) High School, as well as a coach at the youth level in nearby Buffalo.
“He’s always been my guide,” said Jacob Scherber, who followed in his father’s footsteps by enrolling at Saint John’s as a freshman in the fall of 2018.
“He helped instill in me a mentality of always working hard, and trying to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
“Seeing everything he was able to accomplish has always been motivational for me. It’s given me something to shoot for.”
And, indeed, Scherber has managed to pile up some impressive achievements of his own.
