STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC announced today that Jordan Melia has been hired to be the U16-19 Boys Director for TFC Academy. Within this role, Jordan will coach the 2004 and 2005 NPL boys teams, guide players in their college recruiting journey, and further link the experience for our youth participants to our professional players.
"We are excited to continue to bring in coaches with vast amounts of playing experience at high levels, collegiate coaching experience, and a positivity that will promote success for our players on and off the field," TFC Academy Director of Operations Brad Nein said.
