The Northwestern State soccer program has added to its 2020 signing class with the signing of goalkeeper Keyla Perez.

Perez, a Georgetown (Texas) High School product, was named district Goalkeeper MVP as a junior, leading her school to the district championship.

“She has great size and physical attributes for the position,” Jobe said. “She is great coming off the line and will make that position group even stronger heading into 2020.”

She is brought in to add a third goalkeeper to the Lady Demons roster, replacing Kayla Bomben, who was a senior in 2019.

“We want to keep a healthy level of competition at that position,” co-head coach Jess Jobe said. “She’ll be able to develop nicely and I think she has a great future for us.”

Perez joins junior Acelya Aydogmus and redshirt freshman Savannah Hall as goalkeepers on the NSU roster.

In district play, she allowed only one goal as a junior and has led Georgetown to a top-10 ranking in Texas Class 5A.

“We’re excited to get Keyla, who is not only a great athlete, but a great person,” Jobe said.

Co-head coaches Jess and Anna Jobe announced the signing of six signees in November, capitalizing on a strong 2019 season that saw the Lady Demons have their best season since 2005 and reach the conference tournament title game.
