Bobby Smyrniotis on Stoddart:
First and foremost he has been a player I have enjoyed coaching from his first day here at SIGMA. He brings a great energy and competitiveness to training which has only grown over the years. He has a great love of the game and love for training and that is important for a player to keep on developing their game. Jordan had two great years at Herkimer and his transition to Winthrop will be very smooth because of it. He is a mature young man who knows what he will gain from this whole experience. As a player he is a delight to watch. His pace especially on the ball is second to none. Once he gets into a rhythm on the pitch there a few who can stop him and I look forward to that continuing at Winthrop and beyond. It has been a long journey for Jordan and I congratulate him on reaching this goal and look forward to the next one beyond!


In His Own Words:
"Over the years Coach Bobby and the Sigma family have treated me with plenty of respect. The coaching staff have expanded my talents to new heights and I am thankful. After capturing back-to-back NJCAA titles at Herkimer Community College I have chosen to transfer to Winthrop University.

"In the past eight years, Winthrop has won four Big South titles. I am excited to compete at a high level and also play in some good weather. Sigma has developed hard working players to the pro ranks and I am trying to do my best to add my name that list."


In coach Rich Posipanko's words:
"Jordan came onto our radar a few years ago on a recruiting weekend in Toronto when he was in high school. He ended up at Herkimer which is one of the top NJCAA schools in the country. With the loss of some good attackers from last season, we were looking for a goal scorer with pace and experience and we feel that we have found that in Jordan".
