Meet Jake Brumby.
SD Polo: How did you get involved in polo?
Brumby: I’ve raced motocross my whole life. I spent a lot of time with my dad on dirt bikes. I raced and did very well, but after a few injuries, my family wanted me to try something a little more safe. I was going to either play football or hockey, but my mom wanted me to try a polo lesson before I made my decision. So, here I am two years later and I’m addicted.
SD Polo: How old are you?
Brumby: I’m 15.
SD Polo: What are some of your accomplishments?
Brumby: Polo related? I’ve played at a few different Polo Clubs, including Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA and Orange County Polo Club. I won my division in the Pacific Coast Polo League and was overall MVP for the division. I was -1 last year and was raised to 0. Also, we just won the 3-Goal Chukkers for Charity match in June. Not bad for 2 years under my belt.
SD Polo: What do you like to do when you aren’t playing polo?
Brumby: Anything adventurous. I’d probably be playing football or lacrosse. School, polo and friends are my life.
