Jack first earned attention when he participated in the Boys ODP Interregionals in 2012 while representing what was then SLSG Metro. His Metro U14 boys team that included Ben Huels (SLU) and Wan Kuzain Wan Kamal (Sporting KC) went on to win the NPL National title. He went on to be called into the U18 YNT in 2015, whom he played for seven more times along with a U20 MNT call up in 2018. He was the first STLFC Academy player to earn minutes with the first team in 2016. Check out the Jack Maher bio page I maintain.
