Jack Dunbar has committed to play water polo at Loyola Marymount University. The senior captain shared, "I chose LMU because I wanted to continue my faith-filled education and play water polo at the highest level. LMU is one of the top Division 1 schools in the country so I have always been interested in the school." He went on to say," The coaches have instilled a great work ethic in their players and I believe I will fit that narrative well."
After competing four years in the Servite program and playing club for SOCAL Water Polo, Dunbar hopes to bring his winning mentality to LMU.
Dunbar was a 3-year varsity letterman for the Friars helping lead Servite Water Polo to the 2018 CIF Division 3 Championship title. This season he earned 1st Team All-CIF and 2nd Team All-Trinity League honors after being recognized All-CIF as a junior. In total he finished the year with 88 goals and 55 assists, finishing second on the team in both categories. Throughout his varsity career he tallied 189 goals and 127 assists.
Coach Andy Coffman shared, "Jack epitomizes what it means to be a student-athlete and a man of Servite. As his coach I couldn't have more pride in how Jack has worked, sacrificed, and achieved success in his sport. He is a true Friar!"
Dunbar is the second Friar from the senior class to commit to playing collegiately joining Jackson Williams who is headed to Wagner College in New York. He will also be the second Friar graduate to play for the Lions in recent years joining goalkeeper Jon Lien '17.
Dunbar would like to thank his family and friends for their support sharing, "I want to thank my coaches for believing in me even when I was overlooked from a young age. I want to thank my parents for their help in my recruiting process and always being by my side." He continued, " Lastly, I want to thank my teammates for being my best friends and pushing me further than I thought I could ever go."
Servite would like to congratulate Jack on this accomplishment and wish him the best at LMU.
