El Modena’s football team was lucky enough to have two players move on to play in college at Chapman University. One of those players is Jake Flath. Flath was a consistent starter on special teams for the Vanguards, filling immensely important roles when needed on the field. Flath is also a very bright student, and has been fighting diabetes throughout his football journey.

Frontline: How did you find your way to Chapman?

Jake Flath: I’ve always had a goal to go to Chapman, before I was given the opportunity to play football. Towards the end of summer, going into my senior year, the team had a clinic for prospective athletes. Immediately, the head coach, Coach Owens, was impressed and took a liking to me. A few coaches came to some games this year and identified me as a top recruit. Aside from recruiting, I had to gain admission into the school based on high academics.

FL: What are you doing now to prepare for Chapman football?

JF: I’m working out everyday during the week. I lift weights and condition with stadiums and other field work.

FL: What position(s) do you believe you will play?

JF: I’ll be playing several positions for the Panthers. Freshman year I plan on starting special teams as a long snapper and over the seasons I aim to play defensive end or interior tackle like I did here at El Mo.

FL: What are you most excited about at Chapman?

JF: I’m most excited about the new opportunities I’ll be able to experience through the school, as well as being a collegiate athlete.
