2 QUESTIONS Q/A
Q – What has your off-season been like so far? (Last game was November 2017 vs MSU)
A – Since our end of the season at Western Michigan in the fall, we have had an intense off-season both on the field and in the weight room. Our spring season usually consists of six or seven matches, so it is nice to be able to get game fitness while technically in our off-season as I prepare for the upcoming season with Kalamazoo FC
Q – What are you most looking forward to in joining Kalamazoo FC?
A – I am looking forward to getting to represent the city of Kalamazoo as it has been my home for the past couple of years. Kalamazoo FC has a great fan base and it will be excited to be able to represent them on the field. I think this will be an exciting season for both the fans and the players and to see everything we can accomplish on the field.
Please join us in welcoming Jake!
