Sports Illustrated Rates AZA Alumnus
as Top Handball Player of All Time
"The finest handball player of
all time and possibly the best ath-
lete, regardless of sport, in the
United States" is how Sports Illus-
trated, a leading weekly sports
magazine, described Jimmy Jacobs
of Los Angeles.
"There is no athlete in the world
who dominates his sport with the
supremacy that Jimmy enjoys in
fourwall handball. Handball is a
1 9manding sport that requires en-
trance, speed, power, and dex-
`rity, all of which the muscular
__.„dcobs, who stands five feet nine
inches and weighs 175 pounds,
has in abundance."
Jacobs has won six U. S.
Handball Association singles

championships and has shared
in four doubles titles.
With his partner Marty Decatur,
Jacobs forms the strongest doubles
competition of all time. They have
never lost a match; they have
never even lost a game. In fact,
Jacobs himself is considered a
great "doubles" player: alone he
can defeat any two other men.
Jacobs, now 35, played football,
baseball and basketball for Gersh-
win Chapter, Aleph Zadik Aleph,
teen-age boys division of Bnai
Brith. When he was on the team,
18 years ago, Gershwin AZA
