"Jason is a former player and starter at NJ Rangers PDL for the past 2 seasons and has started every one of his career games at FDU as a rising RedShirt Senior. He is strong, excellent distributor of the ball, solid vocal leader, athletic and extremely fast central defender that played at Red Bull Academy as a youngster. Jason can play any of the 4 back positions and is a phenomenal 1v1 defender. We are very excited to add him to our squad."
Jason Wells is a strong defender who has helped Division I school Fairleigh Dickinson University to the NEC Tournament. Wells continues to pick up awards and, apart from an injury in 2010, has started every game through his college career. This is a very impressive feat coming out of a competitive and physically tough division. His toughness and desire to win will be a great asset for the 2012 Nor’easters.
