D.C. was born on August 12th in the city, but he was raised in smaller towns along the Schuylkill River, just north of Philadelphia. In his home state, he played pee-wee football, youth football, and even one year of high-school ball for his local team. At home, he had always gone by his last name, and his close friends were allowed to call him Dalton. But, he was very adamant about his dislike for this name. It was his grandfathers name, and D.C. had always been angry at his parents. His father, Carl Jacobs, acquired a promotion from his company in Pennsylvania, the catch was that he would have to move to California. The whole family was pleased. The idea took some getting used to, but eventually, the Jacobs' became excited to become a west coast family.
What's wild about D.C. is that almost his entire personality is false. In Pennsylvania, he was a 'buster', he was 'dode', his confidence was low due to his foolish name, and his lanky build. He played third string quarterback on the freshmen squad, and his best sport was Tennis. His father had always been a coach when he was younger. And, being the child of the head coach is much more traumatizing than it sounds. The whole team hated him, they insisted that he received special favours. His father couldn't let him play quarterback, because the rest of the team MIGHT have viewed it as favouritism. So, He played on the defense, on the second string, and he didn't have a warriors spirit, so he couldn't tackle, and everyone quickly wrote him off as a poor player. But he had the mind of a tactical genius.
His father wasn't a bad man, but he was detached from his life and his family. The most active thing he did as a model parent was coach the football team. And, as was described, that didn't work out very well. When D.C. played freshmen ball in Pennsylvania, he forced himself to try out at Quarterback, despite the hazing he would likely receive the 100 odd kids that he had grown up with. Five kids tried out at the position, and D.C was too nervous, anxiety ridden, and pressured to outperform his competitors. He sat on the bench for the whole season, and he hardly got any reps in practice. He was practically a towel boy.
So, when California became an option, DC, being of a tactical mind, seized the opportunity to live a different life, be some one else, even go by a different name. It was going to be beautiful. He started to work out, having a few months of preparation time before the actual relocation. He worked on his throwing form, he studied football obsessively. His mother became worried about him. His father barely noticed. D.C. gained almost fifteen pounds of muscle in those three months, and by the time he left Pennsylvania on a seven hour flight over the entire nation, he was a changed man. His body had grown into itself better. He felt stronger. He had left his old self behind.
The Jacobs' moved to the west coast in March of D.C.'s freshmen year, the football season was over, and he was still young enough to be anyone he wanted to be. He's charismatic, so he had no trouble making friends, especially when he lied about himself. He told everyone his name was D.C., not Dalton. He told all of the new Jocks at his school that he was the best quarterback at his higschool back home, that he was red-shirted (developmental strategy for football players) for his whole freshmen year, because they didn't want him to get hurt. The false life gave him power. People respected him. He was strong, well built, suddenly attractive
in his own Anglo-Saxon-cave-man-east-coast way.
This time, when D.C. tried out for the football team, he was an aged Sophomore, already sixteen, and insanely confident. He had worked out more over the summer, and his future teamates had no problem running practice reps with D.C. Jacobs on the beach. His confidence became leadership. His leadership went to his head. His big head got him into his female classmate's beds. His promiscuity earned him more respect among his peers. It was a cycle of egotistical madness that gave him a god complex.
With this conceited self worth, D.C. out-shined his competition, and his head coach was impressed enough to put a sophomore on the varsity team. And when the reps started in practice, The team made him their starter. Finally, when the school started getting 400 passing yards a game, he became the god that he was starting to think he might have been. His father praised him more than ever before. It was heaven, and he had designed it all those months ago in his home-town.
Last year, D.C. Jacobs led the team to a 10-4 records, two victories in the play-offs, 29 passing touchdowns, the number three rated passing offensive in the state, and a athletics grant from the board of education worth over 30,000 dollars. Surely it wasn't ALL youn Mr. Jacobs' doing. But he likes to think that he had something to do with it. Needless to say, he's also starting this year, and in the two games that have already been played, he's already got 600 yards through the air, and 127 on the ground. He's gained more weight (more muscle), and he's feeling as immortal as ever.
Dalton's placement on the student council is similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger's place in the governor's office. He's popular, so he thinks he belongs there. He really, really doesn't. See, Dalton isn't an idiot, he's the quarterback. He's smarter than most athletes at the school. But he's not allowed to be brilliant, by social standards. He makes himself out to be more clueless than he is. For example, he makes jokes about serious subjects inside of the council, during a vote, and then he expects everyone to laugh. He might get away with it, nope! He's going to get away with it. He's D.C. fucking Jacobs.
(noted that some of his facts may change, as the football season is varied upon the rest of the game, especially the date.)
