14-Year-Old Wins National Scrabble Championship

Posted: Updated:
Magnolia, TX-A 14-year-old boy is a Scrabble superstar and has taken the title of National Champion in the game.

Jacob Sass from Texas has been playing the popular game since first grade.

Sass averages 10 hours a week in playing time, growing his vocabulary by studying word lists.

He rose as a champion on regional, state and national levels.

Sass says he also loves to indulge in Scrabble games with less experienced players and beating other players in the game.

His mother says it’s a multi-skill game.

"It's not really only a game of words, it's a math game, and Jacob is very strong in math," said his mother, Patricia Sass.
