Jordan Mase crossed the pond between the United Kingdom and the United States for two reasons. One, to become the first in his family to enroll in higher education, and two, to continue playing soccer.
While Mase flourishes in the Allen Community College classroom, he also starred for the Red Devils on the pitch this season. In 11 games for ACC, Mase finished with 11 goals, a perfect goal-scoring record for the first-year striker.
?I came over to play soccer, but also really focus on my education, because at home I don?t have any qualifications,? Mase said. ?Coming here was basically a second chance for me to make something of my life, and soccer has been able to get me halfway there.?
