He played in all 25 matches for the Panthers and helped them advance to the NAIA National Championship Semifinals in 2016. He scored nine goals and added seven assists for Davenport who finished 20-2-3 overall. Love finished his career at DU ranked first in assists (31) and games started (89). He also was second in games played (93) and shots attempted (230), third in points (87) and shots on goal (113) and fourth in goals (28).
“I am thrilled to be apart of the Grand Rapids Football Club” said Love. “The fans make me excited to join the squad because of the great atmosphere they create in the stadium on game days. With such great success last year, I look forward to another great season and I can’t wait to compete in the US open cup.”
GRFC President Matt Roberts on the signing “We are very excited to add Jake to the squad this season. He is a player we have been talking to for some time and weren’t sure what his plans were but when he decided to stay here in Grand Rapids we knew he would be a great addition to the team. He is a very pacey winger who can score goals and chip in with assists as well”.
