Jack Pugh Passes Away
Jack Pugh was an outstanding basketball prospect at Hilliard Bradley High School in Ohio and received scholarship offers from multiple programs.
Pugh decided to pursue an unconventional path: He reclassified into the 2021 class in order to spend his final year of San Diego high school football playing on a premier AAU team.
Early Life and Education
Jack Pugh had never played football prior to his junior year of high school; yet with one scrimmage and some coaching encouragement from Hilliard Bradley High coaches in Ohio, he earned scholarship offers from Mid-American Conference schools – sparking hope of college stardom!
His decision to transfer into the 2021 class was motivated by a desire to secure himself an academic track that would give him enough time to become a top-level prospect. Dan, Jack’s dad, wanted to ensure Jack took all required high school courses as full-time student.
The senior decided on Wisconsin due to their strong track record for developing quality tight ends. Wisconsin beat out Indiana, Penn State and Michigan State as his choice.
Pugh demonstrated her immense talent as an actress with her debut role in 2014’s drama film The Falling. This debut provided audiences with their first taste of her ability to portray different types of characters with distinct perspectives and vulnerabilities.
Pugh may not have made an impactful basketball player, but his footwork and coordination put him on track to become an impressive tight end prospect in college football. A high school All-American, Pugh ultimately chose Wisconsin over Indiana, Penn State, Cincinnati and Michigan universities.
Pugh co-starred alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Chris Pine in Outlaw King, directed by David Mackenzie and written by Simon Greenaway. Elizabeth de Burgh played by Pugh was wife to 14th century Scottish regent Robert the Bruce. This historical war drama explored renewed conflict between England and Scotland throughout British history.
Achievement and Honors
Jack was instrumental in helping establish Boy Scout Troop 241 and Explorer Post 241 in Lafayette. Additionally, he enjoyed backpacking through the Sierras and volunteering with Rotary International service activities. Ralphs-Pugh employees will miss their caring father figure who cared so deeply for them all.
Pugh’s decision to attend Wisconsin over Ohio State and Michigan seemed fortuitous. He became drawn to it on a visit with Trey more than two years earlier during one of Wisconsin’s Junior Day events where they met strength coaches and took a campus tour.
Jack leaves behind his wife Ruth; daughters Stephanie Kirby, Abby Cantrell, Lori Hall and Wesley Hall as well as eight grandchildren including Stacey Aimar Kortie and Dylan Kortie as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Pugh was an active member of First Baptist Church in Grand Bay for 8 years as both Treasurer and Little League coach, as well as an avid golfer who enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Additionally, he was honored to become part of Phi Delta Kappa honor fraternity.
Jack was recruited during his senior year at Hilliard Bradley High in Ohio as a football player. After taking unofficial visits to Michigan, Purdue and Ohio State – before ultimately choosing Wisconsin Badgers as his eventual team. He made this commitment on April 30, 2019.
Olivia Wilde used incels and men’s rights activists as sources of inspiration when making this movie, featuring Harry Styles in the role of Jack (played by herself). Booksmart marks Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut.
