Jake Boldog, a 6-0 setter from Palatine, IL near Chicago, has signed a NCAA National Letter of Intent to play for the North Greenville University men’s volleyball team for the 2016-2017 season.
Boldog attends Palatine High School and plays for Coach Frank Stark. He is a three-year varsity starter and has been captain of the team this season. He has also had a standout career in junior club volleyball as he guided his team to the bronze medal at Club Nationals last season. He competes for the Pipeline Volleyball Club, and is coached by his brother B.J., who was a standout setter at Lewis University where he helped his team to the NCAA I semi-finals.
Jake also was a two-time member of the High Performance Volleyball program through USA Volleyball in Illinois.
“Jake will not be the tallest setter in Conference Carolinas, but he will certainly make up for that with his competiveness and intelligence on the court,” said Crusader Head Coach Dr. Fred Battenfield. “He comes from a great volleyball family and he has a great pair of hands to run our offense. I’m very excited about bringing Jake to Tigerville next year as we continue toward our objective of winning Conference Carolinas.”
Ben is the son of Bob and Tammie Boldog. He plans to major in Business Administration at North Greenville.
