14-year-old midfielder signs with USL's Orange County SC

A 14-year-old soccer player has signed a professional contract with USL Championship club Orange County SC

Jacobs is from Laguna Beach, California. He was 14 years, four months and 29 days old when he signed his deal last month.

That's less than a month younger than Freddy Adu was when he signed with Major League Soccer's DC United in November 2003.

Jacobs could play for Orange County later this season.
