Welcome back to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.
We sat down with RBR baseball player Jack Mangold, who hit .275 and had five doubles on the season for the Bucs last spring.
Name: Jack Mangold
Sport in College: Baseball
College: Colby College (Waterville, ME)
Buc to: Mule
What to follow*: @themules
In five years, I’ll: hopefully have a successful job in business in New York
Bagel Order: Plain bagel with butter
EB: Why Colby?
JM: It was the best academic school that I was looking at because I wanted one of the top liberal arts schools in the country. When I did my overnight, I saw how great the facilities were and it’s a really nice campus that I got a feel for. The coaches were really nice and all the players seemed like they really like it.
EB: What has RBR baseball taught you?
JM: How to play as a team and be less selfish. (Head coach Nick) Tucker’s big about that, playing as a team and doing whatever it takes for the team instead of just trying to do it by yourself.
EB: What’s your favorite RBR baseball memory?
JM: Probably when we hit the walk-off against Monmouth in the Strike Out Autism Challenge (in 2015).
