Top 10 athletes: #6

By Jacob Onak

Ending his career holding the NIU shutout record and making his fourth straight top 10 appearance is men’s soccer goalkeeper Jordan Godsey.

Godsey was an integral part of the Huskies’ succes the past four years and topped his career off with breaking the NIU all-time career shutout record in his match against Rhode Island on Sept. 7.

Godsey notched his 27th shutout of his career, breaking Markus Roy’s record from 1991.

In addition to breaking the shut-out record, Godsey was named to the All-MAC tournament team for his performance in the tournament.

In the 2012 season, Godsey played in all 20 games for NIU and had a 1.05 goals-against average with 90 saves, a .804 save percentage and nine total shutouts in his final year.

Though NIU finished with a 7-10-3 record and failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament, Godsey believes he didn’t hold anything back in his time as a Huskie.

“It’s awesome. We obviously didn’t do the best we could, but personally I think I had a good career,” Godsey said. “…Personally I think I played the best I could for the four years U’ve been here, and it’s been a good journey with all the guys, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world man. It was a great time.”
