We are excited to have Jason join our organization, said Dave Kasper, United Technical Director. He is a talented young player and we look forward to his contributions to our team.
Thompson, a member of the U-23 National Team, has made just one appearance in league play this season as a result of spending time rehabilitating a torn ACL suffered while training with the U-23 National Team in Portugal in January. In 2003, he played with the U-23 National Team on a tour of England in which he scored two goals.
A standout in college, Thompson was an Honorable Mention All-Missouri Valley Conference selection in 2001, his second year at Eastern Illinois University. In 2000, he led the nation in goals and was runner-up in points. His efforts earned him a unanimous pick as Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year, Soccer America Freshman All-American, and Second Team All-Mid Region.
