Colorado Springs, CO (January 3, 2019) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced today that the club has re-signed Jordan Burt for his sixth season in Colorado Springs, pending USL Championship and USSF approval.
"It's such a blessing to be able to play for the Switchbacks for six years," said Burt. "I know the fans by name, love the club, and call Colorado Springs home."
Burt, 29, was a member of the Switchbacks inaugural season in 2015 and he has been a linchpin for the club ever since. The 2019 captain's versatility has allowed him to amass 12,294 minutes in his professional career. Primarily a right back, Burt has spent time in the midfield and as a forward, leading the club in goals in 2018 (6) and 2019 (7).
"There is nobody who embodies the Switchbacks more than Jordan Burt," said Switchbacks Head Coach, Alan Koch. "Jordan is an amazing person who wears his heart on his sleeve, and is willing to do whatever it takes for the team to be successful. His impact on the club is nothing short of remarkable, and we are excited to bring him back for another season with the team. We will rely heavily on his leadership in this transitional phase and I look forward to him having continued success on the pitch for the Switchbacks."
