JACKSON TWP. Jackson senior Andy Dragota will continue his academic and soccer careers this fall at the Air Force Academy.

Dragota, a two-year starter, helped Jackson to Federal League and district championships  the past two seasons. He led the team in scoring and was named Federal League and Stark County player of the year as well as being named Second Team All-Ohio in 2017.

He was part of a team that went 9-7 and 5-1 in league play during the 2018 regular season. Dragota joins an Air Force team that went 17-4 last season and reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division I tournament before falling to eventual national semifinalist Indiana by a 2-0 score.

Dragota’s family and coaches were on hand for his signing ceremony.
