- Appeared in all but one match for Greenville Triumph SC in 2023, posting six clean sheets
- Among league leaders in saves, save percentage, and goals-against average
Sacramento, Calif. – Today, Republic FC announced the club has signed goalkeeper Jared Mazzola ahead of the 2024 season. He will be added to the club’s roster pending league and federation approval. Per club policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.
“Jared’s goalkeeping ability caught our attention, but his character and qualities as a teammate really set him apart,” said Republic FC President and General Manager Todd Dunivant. “We’re thrilled to have him join our goalkeeping corps and feel that he’ll be an impactful addition to our roster, on the field and in the locker room.”
Mazzola joins Sacramento following two seasons with USL League One side Greenville Triumph SC. After signing with Greenville ahead of the 2022 season, he earned the starting spot in 2023 and would go on to appear in all but one match, with 33 appearances and nearly 3,000 minutes played across all competitions. He finished second in the league with 88 saves, while his save percentage (67.69) and goals-against average (1.23) were both in the top five for goalkeepers with more than 20 appearances. Behind Mazzola’s six clean sheets, Greenville made its fifth postseason appearance – the only club to play in every playoff tournament since League One’s inception.
Before signing his first professional contract with Greenville, the 24-year-old spent two seasons in USL League Two with AFC Ann Arbor and New York Red Bulls U21. He played collegiately at Quinnipiac University, where he amassed nearly 4,000 minutes, recording 9 shutouts and an overall goals-against average of 1.11. In his senior year, he was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Goalkeeper of the Year and earned selections to the All-MAAC Team and MAAC All-Academic Team.
Republic FC will continue to build its roster for the 2024 USL Championship season. In January, the club will host its annual Open Tryout, when the region’s best players get the opportunity to impress the team’s technical staff and earn an invitation to training camp. Registration will open early December.
