We are thrilled to announce that Soccer Assist client Archie Jones has secured his place and committed to NCAA Division II school, Colorado State University-Pueblo. Hailing from London, the former Reading FC left midfielder will be joining the Colorado State University Thunderwolves men’s soccer roster this fall.
Archie tells us that he has been playing soccer from a young age and has been involved in a number of elite football clubs throughout his youth years. Archie’s football resume has teams such as Reading Football Club, Waltham Forest Fc and West End Football Club. Archie approached Soccer Assist with the intention of allowing his footballing talent to pay for his education. When describing his playing style Archie stated he was a winger who likes to ‘score goals, get crosses into the box and attack the fullbacks’.
Archie will be joining fellow Soccer Assist athletes Lewis Chambers and Harvey Thorne at the NCAA Division II college. CSU head coach Roy Stanley was eager to have Archie join his roster this fall after viewing his highlight tape. Stanley said, ‘Straight away you can tell Archie is hardworking – that quality will help him at this level. He has a good delivery and can also score goals! Looking forward to tracking his progress.’
Soccer Assist director Junior recalls Archies journey with the agency so far, ‘Prior to Archie coming on board, he was really keen about the route but had a lot of questions regarding the process. We were able to assist him through the process and put his doubts at ease. Since joining Soccer Assist he has excelled and will continue to do so once abroad.’ Archie joined Soccer Assist in January 2018 after impressing SA at a December 2017 London assessment day, with the goal to head out to the U.S. fall 2018. His goal has been met as he is flying out to start his scholarship journey this August.
