FLVS Student Drafted by the Boston Red Sox

Jake Herbert is more than your average Spring 2019 gradate—this FLVS homeschool alum was drafted by the Boston Red Sox this month! The 18-year-old Polk county resident said, “To be drafted by the Boston Red Sox is a dream come true. It is the greatest achievement of my life so far.”

That’s quite a statement considering Herbert graduated high school with more than a 4.0 GPA, was recently named Polk County Hitter of the Year, All-State First Team, and has earned a Bright Futures Scholarship.

Aside from going pro, Hebert said he will take some college classes online in the fall during his off season. He plans to pursue an MBA and the Boston Red Sox have awarded him a 4-year scholarship to any state university in Florida.

Herbert took 14 core courses with FLVS and credits a lot of his success to the school.
