PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The La Salle University men’s soccer team is alone at the top of the Atlantic 10 with a 3-0 conference mark and a big reason why is the play of senior Jason Plumhoff.
The midfielder currently leads the Atlantic 10 in assists with eight and he is tied for the conference lead in goals with seven.
While he is now starring at La Salle, Plumhoff’s soccer journey actually started in Germany where he grew up. His father works for the government and was based there when Jason was born.
“I grew up in Southern Bavaria in a little town called Rosenheim,” Plumhoff tells KYW Newsradio. “Played soccer there obviously, because everyone loves soccer in Germany. Got recruited by FC Bayern, one of the big club teams over in Europe, and actually moved to Munich and started playing at a soccer academy school type of thing. Then my dad got relocated back to Fort Meade in Maryland, so we had to come back here when I was 15.”
