Greenville, SC - Greenville Triumph SC has signed defender Jacob Goodall, pending league and federation approval. The Xavier graduate joins a highly accomplished backline that boasted a league-leading nine shutouts during the club's championship season.
Goodall comes to the Triumph after spending five seasons with Xavier University. His collegiate career began in 2015, with Goodall appearing in 15 total matches during his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Throughout his final three seasons with the Muskateers, including a redshirt senior season in 2018, Goodall appeared in 55 matches with 47 starts and logged 4,703 minutes. He posted a team-high eight assists in 2017 and helped the Xavier defense to six shutouts in 2018. Goodall also tallied three goals for the Big East powerhouse.
"We are excited to welcome Jacob to the Greenville Triumph," said head coach John Harkes. "He's a left-sided, versatile player that can play as a fullback or left midfielder. He has good technique with tough defensive qualities and an engine to get up and down the flanks. Jacob also fits in extremely well with our culture and brings great character to our group."
Since his time at Xavier, the Brandon, Florida native has served as a coach for the privately held company, Coerver Coaching - UAE. He has been in camp with the Triumph since the team began training in March.
Goodall joins a robust group of players including 14 returners from the 2020 season and new signings Marios Lomis and Don Smart. For the team's full roster, click here.
