Hagerstown, Md. - Williamsport High School senior, Jordan Payne, recently committed to Hagerstown Community College for the fall season.

Along the way he picked up First Team All-County, First Team All-County Coaches, and First Team All-MVAL honors. He also was selected to play in the 9th annual Four Diamonds All-Star game, where Maryland players take on those from Pennsylvania.

In 2009, Payne helped the Wildcats to an 11-5-2 overall record and 6-1-1 in conference. He finished with eight goals and six assists. He was named Second Team All-County, Second Team All-County Coaches, and Second Team All-MVAL.

Payne is also a member of the Hagerstown Soccer Club, and has been competing with them for nine years.

"Jordan brings natural speed and a knack for scoring that will help us this season," stated Head Coach Brian Eichelberger. "He's been a consistent threat in the county for the last three years, so we are excited that he decided to continue his career at Hagerstown."
