Jade Johnson(’15): National Premier Soccer

Source: JamestownSun.com

Jade Johnson was recently named the National Premier Soccer League’s Mitre Player of the Week. The 24-year-old Johnson, who plays for the first-year Dakota Fusion FC based out of Fargo, ranks second in goals (17) this season in the 96-team NPSL.

That’s just his night job, so to speak. Johnson works full time at Agri-Cover in Jamestown and part time at Jamestown Regional Airport. It’s not out of the ordinary for him to be fueling an airplane at 5:30 a.m., followed by a 9-5 shift at Agricover. When work’s over, he hauls to Fargo for practice from 7:15-9 and occasionally has to be back on the runway at 10:30 to gas-up another plane.

Johnson finished just one goal short of winning the golden boot award for the most goals in the league.

Jade graduated from UJ in 2015 with BA in Computer Science & IT.
