Tacoma Weekly Profiles Tide Keeper Jennings

The Tacoma Weekly has a nice story on Tacoma Tide FC goalkeeper (Seattle University) Jordan Jennings.

“I’ve been playing soccer since I was really small,” said Jordan Jennings, goalkeeper for Seattle University and the Tacoma Tide, in a recent interview in a cafe, where he nursed a root beer – the only drink in the place without some caffeine.

“At this point, it’s all mental. It’s not about technique. It is about staying totally focused during the entire game.”

Here is focused: during a recent seven-game streak, Jennings went on a binge of stinginess, giving up one goal and posting six shutouts. He said, in the great tradition, it is not about the goalie, but about the entire defense.

“We have a good defense and we all work together really well,” Jennings said.
