Testimonial

Life after my injury has been a rollercoaster. At first I was certain I was going to play field hockey again. I thought I have gotten through this injury what could possibly stop me now. However, as time went on the motivation to play lessened. The doctor’s weren’t even considering the question; what if I played again? They told me I would have to wear a protective mask of some sort every second I was around field hockey play.

In my experiences with field hockey, not many players wore protective facial equipment. Therefore if I chose to continue playing I would be different than everyone else. This idea of a mask made me nervous to start playing. My mom started to research different types of masks. She came across Jeremy Murray. It seemed too good to be true when he said that he has done facial masks before!

After receiving and trying on the masks he made for me I was sure about playing. I tried out as a freshman at Cabrini College and made the team. The mask has created more reassurance while I am playing. I am very thankful for Jeremy’s help and would recommend him to anyone.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman defender Elizabeth Jacobson of the Harvard field hockey team was tabbed Ivy League Co-Rookie of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. The newcomer tallied the first assist and goal of her career over the last seven days. Jacobson shared the award with Brown's Alexis Miller, who also had a goal and an assist.

Jacobson started the week with an assist in Harvard's 4-1 win over Bryant Sept. 24. She sent a pass into the middle of the circle where Noel Painter redirected it into the goal to seal the Crimson's victory in the second half.

After contributing to Harvard's first Ivy League victory of the season, a 1-0 shutout of Brown Sept. 29, Jacobson scored her first career goal versus Quinnipiac Sept. 30. With Harvard trailing 1-0 in the first half, the Branchburg, N.J., native took a pass from Bridget McGillivray and sent it to the back of the cage to even the score. Jacobson wrapped her stick around the back side of a Quinnipiac defender on the right side of the cage, as McGillivray crossed the ball from the left to pull the Bobcat's goalie out of position and allow Jacobson to put the ball across the line.

The award is the first of Jacobson's career and Harvard's first Ivy League honor of the season. The last time a Crimson player had won a Rookie of the Week award was Oct. 25 of last season, when Noel Painter was chosen.
