Six Star Football recently caught up with Tuttle and asked him about his senior year.
Six Star — What are some of the things that you feel you improved upon during this off season?
Jake — This off-season I worked really hard in the weight room and gained some weight. I feel like I’m also faster and worked on my footwork and hands a lot.
Six Star — Who has been the most influential person in your football life so far?
Jake — My parents are always very supportive and have helped me a lot. Also my high school coaches and trainers that I go to have poured a lot of knowledge and time into me to help me develop into the player I am today.
Six Star — Tell us about your summer, camps, combines, visits, etc. Tell us about the experience and what you were able to take away from it, what camps you attended?
Jake — I had a very busy summer between camps and visits. Like I said, my parents are very supportive and are willing to take me all over the country. I went to a lot of camps to schools in the Northeast that are recruiting me along with a bunch of schools in Texas. Having the opportunity to go against guys all over the country made me a better player.
Six Star — Most people don’t know this about me but
Jake — I Have lived in 4 different states
Six Star — Pre Game Ritual
Jake — Say a prayer, talk to my linemen and other RBs, and listen to music
Six Star — Favorite Song:
Jake — Blue Notes – Meek Mill
Six Star — Favorite Class in school:

Six Star — What has been the best game you have had in your career and why
Jake — This year playing Tahlequah was a great game. We were both 5-0 and a lot of people thought we were overrated and going to lose the game. Going into their place and beating them 43-8 on their homecoming was a great feeling.
Six Star — Biggest weight room accomplishment
Jake — Getting over 400 lbs on squat
Six Star — Teammate likely to be a college star
Jake — Grayson Boomer. He has been troubled by injury in HS, but has a ton of potential and has the right mindset to succeed in college. He’s going to tear it up at OK State
Six Star — Hardest working player on the team
Jake — Seth Weiser, he has a crazy motor and pushes me along with all the other guys in the weight room. He expects the best out of himself and all his teammates
Six Star — Player to keep an eye on
Cole Dugger, we have been a primarily run dominant team this year but the guy can make all the right throws. Has a super strong arm and is very accurate as well.
