Jacob LaMarche came to Nebraska Wesleyan with two passions: football and a possible career in healthcare.
Little did he know how an injury on the field would quickly expose him to a new career path.
LaMarche, a graduate of Ralston High School, easily recalls that fall day in 2016 when he dislocated his left ankle. A sophomore at the time, LaMarche didn’t initially recognize the seriousness of the injury.
“I was in the process of blocking someone when it happened, so I was pretty focused on the play,” he recalled.
