by Mick Jacob
Oulart-the-Ballagh’s Mick Jacob wasn’t the biggest man in the world, so how did he become hurling’s king of centre-backs through the 1970s and into the 80s? Was it because he was a genius on the ball, or a fiercesome warrior when chasing down an opponent in possession? The Wexford legend won it all in purple and gold - an AllIreland, four Leinster titles, one National League and three All Star awards. For his own famed club and his beloved county, Jacob was irrepressible from the mid-60s until he finally retired from the county stage in 1984.
