Game Changer: Jordan Couch

Updated: Friday, October 4 2013, 11:04 AM EDT
The Smoky Mountain Soccer Team is one of the best in Western North Carolina. 

Head Coach, Dolphus Brown says, "The resolve of these guys.  We've got nine seniors.  All nine of them start.  Very mature guys."

The Mustangs are 9-2-1 this season, led by Senior, Jordan Couch.  He has scored 116 goals in his career, shattering the school record and putting him in the top 25 in the state. 

Jordan Couch says, "Winning.  We've had a good program here.  We're trying to make this year the biggest one yet."

Dolphus Brown says, "He is the most determined guys on offense.  He works the hardest.  22 years of coaching.  I've never had a guy... we've had some great goal scorers in our program.  Jordan is the hardest working guy I've ever seen."

Smoky Mountain Senior, Jordan Couch has scored more goals on these nets than any player in the history of this school. Last week, he hit the game-winner against East Henderson that buried into the back of this net to give his team a huge conference victory, and a big confidence boost."

Jordan's game-winning goal against East Henderson is typical for the moments Couch has created during his career.  His teammates have a flair for the dramatic as well.  Defender, Lance Busky took this free kick from 60 yards away, and put it over the keeper's head. 

Jordan says, "The funny thing is, he hit one of those... he hit one of those earlier this season against Polk.  So, we're like, second time, might as well. 

Smoky Mountain will go for win number ten on the season tonight at Pisgah at 7:00.
