As a Panther at Comstock Park, Vogel was a mainstay as a leader on the team after being named captain for his sophomore and senior campaigns. The captain stints also brought Vogel Team MVP honors after the Panther finished a pair of successful seasons. As a senior in 2011, Vogel's high school career was culminated by a Top-5 finish in a loaded district that was home to 12-15 other programs throughout the West Michigan area.
Since 2010, the future Mustang played on the Michigan Junior PGA Tour, while entering a host of other amateur events. Vogel, a golf enthusiast, also played six years on the West Michigan Junior Golf Tour.
Coach McAuliffe on Vogel: Jake brings another great golf background to our program. He, along with Tyler, will be considered cornerstones of what is shaping up to be a very talented 2013 class for our men's team. Jake has a great understanding for the game and has played on many challenging courses growing up on Michigan's west side. I look forward to coaching him and the rest of the team soon.
