Adam Jones Again in the Spotlight
Posted by Lindsay on September 18, 2017
Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves Premier team alumni, Adam Jones finds himself again as a highlight to Simon Fraser University's NCAA Division 2 men's soccer program. Last year, Jones was voted as the NCAA Div 2 West Region men's Player of the Year, the 2016 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year, and was an All-GNAC First Team selection after leading the conference in points and assists, in addition to being Simon Fraser's top goal scorer.
With the number of accolades mounting for Simon Fraser's star mid-fielder, Clan's head coach Clint Schneider, remarked "It was a re-affirming moment for
us, in that we needed to just keep doing the same things that we have been doing with our recruiting."
Back in 2012, when Jones, the 5-foot-7 midfielder with a much lighter resume, may have been passed up by many as other coaches may have been blinded by the so called 'eye test' - too small. Stomping down this repeated judgement throughout sport, Jones has triumphed and is heralded as one of the most dynamic players in all of NCAA soccer.
As his collegiate career comes to a close, we look on enthusiastically for what the rest of the soccer world has in store for Adam Jones.
