East Midlands Rugby Call Up For Jack
The CBA student's call up comes after he took part in the Schools of Rugby programme.
The selection is a dream come true for the Year 10 student whose ambition is to one day play for the England Lions.
His first East Midlands duty will be a two-day training camp at Moulton College from July 17.
He will then take part in the intensive training sessions before the season starts in September where he will be competing in games against some of the best under 16s in the country.
The student, who plays in the second row said: "When I found out I had been selected I was just so pleased as I have put a huge amount of work and training in."
To make sure he has the best chance of fulfilling his England dream, the student has been doing daily 6.25am training runs before Academy starts and is also having nutritional advice from a senior physiotherapist from Corby rugby Club Stewarts and Lloyds.
