A 22-year-old rising women's soccer star is retiring to take a job at Amazon

Friday November 7th, 2014

A 22-year-old rising star in the National Women's Soccer League is trading potential championship cups for ... coffee cups and a desk job?

Jazmine Reeves, who played just one season with the Boston Breakers of the NWSL, announced her retirement from the team Thursday. Her next gig: A job at Amazon.

“Leaving Boston was definitely one of the harder decisions I have had to make,” Reeves said in a statement released by the team. “I really enjoyed my time with the Breakers, and I am very thankful for the experience. When I was presented with the opportunity to work for such an amazing company in Amazon, I felt it was something that I simply could not pass up.” 

Reeves didn't say what she'd be doing at Amazon. She did plenty in her one and only season with the Breakers, ranking second on the team with seven goals. The Breakers selected her in the third round of the 2014 NWSL draft.
