Goalkeeper Jack Komakech believes that he is the next Denis Onyango and dreams of playing soccer abroad in five years time.

But who is he? Komakech was born to Billy Okot and Florence Aciro on July 31, 2002 in Gulu Referral hospital, Gulu district.

He has been playing with Football For Good Youth Academy since 2015. The Acholi is a student at Buziga Islamic and has turned out for Ndejje University junior team.

He caught everyone’s attention in 2016 while playing for Football For Good academy in Oriya Cup in Gulu where he made tremendous saves.

“I made a lot of saves including one-on-ones and everyone was impressed,” Komakech reflects with a beaming smile.

“We finished third in the tourney despite facing U23 teams. It was a great performance and we dominated sides.”

The teenager featured for the Uganda U17 team, the Cubs, at CAF U17 championship in Dar Es Salaam.

He played for the Uganda U20 national team during the CECAFA U20 tournament  last year.

He was recently summoned to train with Uganda Cranes last year as the side prepared for CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.
