Jacobs is excited to join the club and cited his connections to fellow BlueGreens players as a source for his interest, “I talked a lot with my friend Alberto about Duluth FC, he said so many positive things about Duluth FC which made it easier to decide for me. I know that Duluth is just founded, nevertheless is the team already on a great level to be one of the best of the country as I heard. I am very excited to perform in the US Open Cup as well as competing to win the championship.”
