A star player in the making! Jackson Roloff apparently took part in his first soccer class, and proud dad Zach made sure to post about the auspicious occasion on Instagram. Zach is well-known by Little People, Big World fans for his interest in and success with soccer, so it definitely makes sense that he and Tori Roloff are trying to have their son follow in his footsteps!
“Jackson had his first soccer class today!” Zach wrote on Instagram on Nov. 28. He then thanked “Coach Todd,” who is presumably a coach at the facility Zach also tagged in the post, Indoor Goals Sports Arena. And if soccer fan Zach has anything to say about it, it likely won’t be Jackson’s last class.
In the photo, little Jackson is holding onto his dad’s hand as they look out over an indoor soccer field. He’s wearing the tiniest jersey in the shot, in case the moment already wasn’t cute enough for you. Since Zach is in the photo, it’s safe to say that Tori probably snapped the shot, even though Jackson’s dad is the one who posted it to social media.
Recently, Zach competed in the COPA American Talla Baja, “AKA dwarf Wold Cup of soccer,” as Tori wrote on Instagram. His team placed fourth out of nine, which is pretty impressive! And when he returned from the trip to Brazil to participate in the competition, Jackson was waiting at the airport to welcome him home.
And with any luck, maybe one day Tori and Zach will be the ones waiting at the airport to welcome Jackson home after he’s off competing for soccer championships himself. If he decides to pursue the sport, the comments on Zach’s post prove that he’d have a lot of supporters. “I hope he loves it as much as daddy does!!!!!” one person wrote. Another responded, “Omg…I can’t wait to watch Jackson play.” We agree wholeheartedly!
