STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC 2 has announced French winger Alexis Ledoux as the first player on its 2022 USL League Two roster, pending league and federation approval. After a breakout season in 2021, fan-favorite Ledoux will play a crucial role in Tormenta FC 2’s aspiring title run under TFC 2 Head Coach Tom Morris.

“With Alexis’s talent, professional potential, and outstanding character, he was one of the first players we focused on resigning for this coming season,” TFC 2 Head Coach Tom Morris said. “Since Alexis was with us in 2021, we are pleased to see he has continued his development with the University of Charleston under Coach Daniel Smee. Watching a lot of his games this year, it was no surprise that he earned All-American honors and helped lead the Golden Eagles to back-to-back National title games.

“Everyone at the club is excited to work with Alexis and his bubbly personality again this season. With continued hard work and focus, I’m confident we can help him achieve his goals of becoming a pro upon graduation.”

The young talent broke through in 2021 with Tormenta FC 2, scoring five goals and recording two assists in 13 matches played. Ledoux played a crucial part in TFC 2’s 10-3-1 winning season, helping the team to its third USL League Two Playoffs run. Ledoux’s impressive performances earned him a spot on the 2021 USL League Two Southern Conference Team of the Year.

“I’m happy to announce my comeback to Tormenta this summer for the USL League Two season,” Ledoux said. “ I can’t wait to see all the fans again. Vamos Tormenta!”

When not playing for Tormenta FC 2, Ledoux develops his education and athletic career at the University of Charleston (West Virginia). There, he plays alongside former TFC 2 forward Gabriel Rodriguez and competed with midfielder Gabriel Cabral, who recently signed his first professional contract with Tormenta FC’s USL League One side.

During his sophomore season with the Golden Eagles, Ledoux recorded eight goals, five assists and 43 shots and started in all but two of his 24 games played. The winger helped his squad advance to the NCAA DII National Championship Final in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where UCWV fell in a close 1-0 match to California State University LA. Following his championship run, Ledoux earned a place on the D2CCA All-Atlantic Region First Team.

Tormenta FC supporters should stay tuned for more USL League One, League Two and W League roster announcements in the coming weeks, as well as a full 2022 USL League Two schedule release.

The club looks forward to opening its new 5,300-seat stadium in Statesboro this year, which will serve as home to the club’s USL League One, League Two and W League squads, as well as Georgia Southern University Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I soccer teams.

Fans can now secure their seats at the new Tormenta Stadium with numerous ticket options available like 2022 Season Memberships+ and Flex Ticket Packages. For additional information and scheduling interviews, call (478-508-2604) or email bodonnell@tormentafc.com.
