BROCKTON – On the Brockton High football team, every player has a different role.

Some are seen front-and-center, chest-pumping in the end zone after rushing home a touchdown. Others take pride in excelling more subtly, hiding somewhere within the limelight cast upon their teammates. 

Count senior kicker Jack Dumas as a perfect fit for the second category. He spends a bulk of his time during games distant on the sidelines alongside a plastic tee, perfecting his kickoff form while keeping his leg warm and stretched out.

Inside the soft-spoken, two-year varsity player resides a multi-dimensional athlete that very few people know about. Dumas, a longtime speedcar racer, competes in the Pro 4 Modified division all around New England. 

But he’s not done there. Dumas is also an accomplished taekwondo competitor with success across not only Massachusetts but New York and New Jersey, as well.

“I find it fun,” said Dumas. “I mean, I find it boring to focus on only one sport.”

Brockton High's Jack Dumas poses with his race car at Marciano Stadium.

A third-generation driver, Dumas made his debut in the Pro 4 Modified division in 2021. He won his first race at Hudson Speedway in New Hampshire, and this year, he has four podium finishes and a signature win at the Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, New Hampshire, to his name. 

Draped in the Brockton High colors and Boxer logos, Dumas’ Pro 4 Modified is a lightweight car with a four-cylinder engine, quite the step up from the go-karts and smaller vehicles he started out with at age 4.
