TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- ESPN 150 outside linebacker Jacob Pugh (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby) has aspirations to play in the NFL, just like many players his age. Regardless of where his football career takes him, this 6-foot-4, 220-pound athlete has another dream that he plans to fulfill.
"I want to own my own trucking company," Pugh said. "For one, my uncle had a trucking business for a long time. A couple people that go to my church are truck drivers. They just talk to me about what they do and it seems fun and interesting. It's something I'd really like to do.
"Every school I've been to, they ask me what I [want to] major in. They show me their business department and tell me some good stuff about their business schools. Every school I go to, their business school is ranked highly in something."
With his success on the field, the Under Armour All-American can study business at just about any school he chooses. But Pugh has narrowed down his list of schools to three, in no particular order.
