Massachusetts Native King Joins JWU Men's Soccer

CHARLOTTE, NC -- Johnson & Wales Charlotte Men's Soccer Coach Matt Payne is pleased to announce Oscar King as the newest addition to the program. The versatile midfielder arrives at JWU from Milton, Massachusetts. King was a four year varsity letter winner, once for Catholic Memorial and three seasons for Milton High School. In addition to his scholastic soccer prowess, King was a four year member of the Massachusetts Olympic Development Program. He most recently played his club soccer for Nova Premier Soccer Club after captaining FC Blazers for three years. He considers Nova's Kevin Smith and Blazers' Francis Okaroh as two coaches instrumental in his development.

"I chose JWU Charlotte because it had the Major that I was interested in and was also in a great location," said King on his college choice. "I also decided to play soccer because the team and coaching sounded amazing here as well."

Oscar is the son of Catherine and William King and will major in Public Health.

"Oscar has been an absolute pleasure to communicate with from our first conversation, and I can't wait to work with him in person," commented Coach Payne. "As a player, his versatility and technical ability should allow him to contribute to the squad at multiple positions during his time here. We are glad to have him in the program."
