Jacob Worley is a three-sport athlete for Legacy Charter, competing for the Lions in football, basketball and baseball — but the Ocoee native focuses on baseball over the summer. Playing for CFL Citius 2020 Red during travel-ball season, Worley recently made the all-tournament team as a pitcher for the 2018 WWBA 17U National Championship in the Greater Atlanta area of Georgia.
I felt really good pitching. It was my first tournament ever playing up an age group like that, so to do well like that felt really good. The recognition — it was really cool because that’s the first time I’ve ever made an all-tournament team or anything like that.
I have a fastball, a curveball, a change-up and a slider. I usually try and start it off with a fastball for a strike and then try and mix it up with off-speed to get them to swing for strikes two and three.
I think it went really well, and I can’t wait to see what we do these next two years while I’m still in high school.
I love it. Coach (Jarrett) Wiggers is a great pitching coach and also my football coach. Coach (Jack) Chambless is a good coach, and I love him.
Definitely the game against Foundation Academy in the district playoffs (Legacy won, 4-3, May 1 in extra innings). Just the last play, when they walked the run home for us to win — that was awesome.
I played T-ball when I was 4 and played until I was 12. I took about a year-and-a-half, two-year break and came back to play my freshman year.
Yes. I kind of just got bored coming out to the field and playing a tournament every weekend. ... Playing for Legacy, it’s really refreshing.
This football season should be fun. Last year, I got hurt after five games, so I wasn’t able to play the whole season. This year, I’m looking forward to it.
Rick Riordan is my favorite author, so all of his books. The “Percy Jackson” series is my all-time favorite.
I’ve watched the series “Friends” multiple times. I’ve just always found it really funny. ... Joey Tribbiani is just hilarious on that show.
