Jason was honoured with a nomination on the 2nd team All-Conference, All-Newcomer team, and made the all Tournament Team for the conference finals with a goal and an assist. On June 9th & 10th, the ANB Futbol complex at CDS hosted 80 athletes from all over Canada, for 2 days of practical sessions, small sided games, coordination/speed testing & full sided games. The professionals' comments are below:
"Jason has been a member of the ANB Academy since its inception in 2005. He is a great athlete, and a gifted soccer player. We are very happy for Jason and we look forward to hearing about his future achievements," said Academy Director, Bassam Naim.
