In part one of a two-part Going Deep feature, CAA Football visits the University of Richmond, where senior captain Jacob Pierce has come to embody the very definition of student-athlete, complementing his starting spot on the defensive line with a rigorous academic workload that includes studying for the LSAT , which he took during Richmond’s open week this past week.

Check out Jacob’s story in the video below. More 2013 On Campus coverage can be found here.
