JACKSON TWP.  Jonah Maas will get the chance to extend his time as a Polar Bear, as the Jackson senior signed to continue his academic and soccer careers at Ohio Northern University this fall.

Maas, a three-year varsity letterwinner, has been part of the Jackson soccer program since the youth level, beginning his playing days at the age of 4. He helped lead Jackson to Federal League and district Championships in 2016 and 2017 and as a senior, he was named to the second team in the Federal League and received honorable mention recognition for the Greater Akron All-District team.

“I am so excited to see Jonah compete at the next level,” Jackson coach Michael Biros said. “ONU is getting one of Jackson’s finest and Jonah will continue being a Polar Bear.”

Biros and Maas’ family joined him for his signing ceremony. Ohio Northern is an NCAA Division III school competing in the Ohio Athletic Conference.
