Spanish forward set to begin professional career with the Triumph in 2024
Greenville, SC (January 29, 2024) – The Greenville Triumph Soccer Club has announced the signing of forward, Mohamed Seye to a contract, pending league and federation approval. This signing marks the beginning of this Clemson star’s first professional career after spending an incredible four years with the Tigers.
Seye has had a love for the game ever since he picked up a ball at the of age 7 in his home city of Valencia, Spain. In 2019, he moved to South Carolina, where he was committed to play for the Clemson Tigers. In a Clemson video, Seye explained, “Soccer has given me the opportunity to complete my studies. It has given me the chance to be here, meet new people. Also, to know new cultures and learn another language. Become a man I would say. I’m glad I am still playing and can continue to enjoy it.”
Since the start of his collegiate soccer career, Seye has tallied an impressive amount of points, with 23 goals, 16 assists, and just under 4,000 career minutes. Throughout his four years, the forward was recognized as ACC Co-Offensive Player of the Week (2020), named to Top Drawer Soccer’s Team of the Week (2020) and College Soccer News’ Team of the Week (2020), and made All-ACC third team in 2022.
Seye ranked second on the team in goals (4), assists (6), and points (14) during his senior season, scoring his first career hat trick during the 6-0 shutout victory over Presbyterian College in 2023. He was also a member of two ACC Championships and two NCAA national titles.
During the Tigers’ 2021 national championship campaign, Seye suffered a torn ACL against Louisville. Despite the injury occurring in October, two months prior, he continued to play in the following games leading up to the national championship in December. In an interview with Clemson’s student newspaper, The Tiger, Seye delved into his experience with his injury. “When I got injured, I had two options, which were to stop playing and have surgery or keep playing but playing in another way, having a different role, and I decided to have another role on the team,” Seye said. Throughout the next summer, Seye worked tirelessly to find his way back onto the field. In his first official game back, the star forward scored his first goal since the injury, making it one of the most memorable games for him.
Seye leaves Clemson to sign his first professional contract as a member of the Triumph. He is the first Clemson alum to join GTSC since former Clemson captain, Paul Clowes, who played for the club in 2019 and 2020.
