Grand Rapids, Mi – GRFC announces Caden Jackman as the latest signee to the 2021 roster. As another familiar face for The Boy in Blue, he will add experience and stability to this year’s squad. “I am looking forward to returning to GRFC this summer for another great season”, Jackman says. “We have a great opportunity this year to represent Grand Rapids in USL2 and I am excited to do it with a great group of guys.”
Head Coach, Stu Collins commented, “There aren’t enough superlatives for Caden as a person, player and leader. I felt like he was a crucial part of my recruiting and I am delighted to have him.” He continued, “Caden will be a standard setter for our squad and will display all the necessary tools that will be needed to play in my team this summer. His consistency of performance within his role at the Division 1 level is honestly very hard to rival in my opinion and I hope he can bring that to us this summer.”
Jackman is home-grown, growing up in Grand Rapids and playing for Midwest United FC and Alliance FC. He is currently the captain of the Western Michigan University Men’s Soccer team, and recently got engaged to his high school sweetheart and fellow WMU athlete, Kailyn Mince.
