Jackson Khoury Named USL League One Young Player of the Year

The Lebanese-Australian beat Omar Ciss of the Charlotte Independence and Jayden Oden of Forward Madison for the award.

The midfielder joined Tormenta FC and hit the ground running in his first season as a professional soccer player, scoring 7 goals, assisting 6 goals, and creating 37 chances during 31 appearances for the South Georgia side.

Head Coach, Ian Cameron spoke on the success of Khoury in his award winning season. "Jackson is the perfect fit for our club. A young, talented player who is hungry to improve. He both started the season strong, and ended strong, which is not easy for a young player in their rookie campaign to do." Cameron said, "While he deserves this accolade, it's granted in part for being new and young. Now his challenge lies in improving his output in year two, and making All-League teams. By doing that he'll show his acumen for a strong career in the game. We're excited to help him do that."

Khoury also spoke on the season and the success he had saying, "This means a lot to me especially as a rookie having my first season as a professional. I would love to thank my coaching staff at Tormenta for helping me adapt to the league very quickly and grow a lot as both a player and person throughout this first season. I also want to thank my teammates for helping me along the way as well and pushing me to be better everyday in training."
