JACKSON – Jackson native Marlon Hairston will begin his professional soccer career next week. Until then, he’s back in Jackson a day after being selected in the first round of the Major Leage Soccere SuperDraft.

Hairston was selected 12th overall by the Colorado Rapids. The 19-year-old played two years at The University of Louisville and was named first-team All American Athletic Conference this past season.

After the season ended, the former Callaway High School student says it didn’t take long to realize he would be going pro.
