Venegas and Stars

NASL Signs Venegas

April 6, 2012

Blaine, Minn. - Former Cal State Fullerton forward Kevin Venegas has signed a professional contract with the Minnesota Stars FC of the NASL, the official second division of the U.S. Soccer Federation.

Venegas is one of three newcomers to the roster of the defending league champions. He was a two-time All-Big West Conference first-team selection and led the Titans in goals (6) and points (18) in 2011 and was the No. 2 goal scorer in 2010.

"Kevin was a very good player for us the past four seasons and I am glad to see him get the opportunity to ply his trade in the professional ranks," said Fullerton Head Coach Bob Ammann. "The fact he has joined the defending league champions makes it even better. He has ambition coupled with ability and I am sure Minnesota will see the benefits."

The Lakewood product graduated from Los Alamitos High School. He was ranked one of the top 100 collegiate players as a senior and was the 37th player taken in the MLS supplemental draft by Chivas USA.

The Stars also signed former Cal defender Evan Sassano and Oakland University goalkeeper Mitch Hildebrandt.
