Miami’s Jack Satterwhite – Character Counts Presented by INTEGRIS Miami

By Travis Sloat 

Miami senior Jack Satterwhite is about to walk onto the hardwood for his senior season, but he said his first love will always be played on a 100 yard stretch of turf. 

“I’m more of a football guy, and that’s what I want to play at the next level,” Satterwhite said. “But my goals for any sport are to become a better athlete and continue to regain mobility after my injury.” 

The injury Satterwhite is referring to is a lower back injury sustained in his sophomore football season. He spent 17 months in recovery, which included being benched for his junior sports seasons. Now, during his senior year, he is finishing up his football season and is ready to begin basketball. 

“I’ve been influenced heavily by a guy named Marshall Newhouse,” he said. “He is currently the left tackle for the New England Patriots. I connected to him through a family friend, and he had the same injury I did. He talked to me about how it was still possible to play football, and how to deal with some of the things that come with the injury.” 

Satterwhite said now that football is over, he is seeing recruitment opportunities ramp up.

“If I get the chance to play college football, I’d like to,” Satterwhite said. “I’m headed to OU next weekend, and North Texas after that for visits. As for my education, I think I am wanting to go into business development/management.”
