STATESBORO, Ga. - USL League One released the finalists for the 2020 USL League One Awards today, and Tormenta FC's Pablo Jara was named a finalist for Goalkeeper of the Year after a remarkable season between the sticks.
For a second consecutive year, Jara played every minute of the regular season for Tormenta FC and finished third in League One with 49 saves. The Chilean shot-stopper raised his save percentage to 69 percent and finished third in the league with four shutouts.
On Sept. 19, Jara broke his own club record for most saves in a single USL League One match, making 11 stops against Fort Lauderdale CF to lead Tormenta FC to a 2-1 road victory. Additionally, he earned two Team of the Week honors, Week 6 and Week 10.
