STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC has announced forward Kiana Jacobson to its USL W League roster, pending league and federation approval.
“Kiana has the versatility to play either as a central striker, wide player or as an attacking midfielder. She has the pace and athleticism to go at players and beat them off the dribble, but she can also provide quality wide service or the final pass, and she can finish. She has a lot of experience, and she adds another diverse skill set to our team, and we will use her in a variety of ways. I look forward to watching her play in our system. I am confident she will be a dangerous player for us all summer.”Jim Robbins, Tormenta FC USL W League Head Coach
Jacobson’s versatility to play anywhere in the offensive line made her distinguishable to Robbins and his coaching staff. Her ability to beat defenders and finish in crucial moments will surely come in handy as Tormenta FC attempts to go all the way to the W League Final once again in 2023.
“I joined Tormenta FC because of the professional environment and opportunity the team provides to its players. Many girls from the 2022 season are now playing professionally, and I aspire to do the same one day. I know there’s going to be great competition and great training, I can’t wait to go through it all with this club!”Kiana Jacobson, Tormenta FC Midfielder
In June of 2021, Tormenta FC was named a founding member of the USL W League, an elite pre-professional pathway for women looking to build their careers both on and off the pitch.
