Woodland, Calif. - Five former Cal State Fullerton players have been included on the 15th Anniversary All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's soccer team selected by its head coaches.
Joey DiGiamarino, Duncan Oughton and Eddie Soto are listed on the first team; Mike Ammann is on the second team and Sheldon Thomas is on the third unit.
The MPSF is a federation administering sports not aligned with the traditional conferences. Fullerton competed in the MPSF in men's soccer during the 1992 through 2000 seasons. Other schools formerly or currently competing in men's soccer in addition to Fullerton are UCLA, New Mexico, Denver, San Jose State, Air Force, UNLV, UC Irvine, Sacramento State, Cal State Northridge and Oregon State.
Oughton (from Karori, New Zealand) is the Titans' career scoring leader with 97 points and top goal scorer with 41 during the 1997 through 2000 seasons. He currently plays for the Columbus Crew of the MLS and is a member of New Zealand's national team.
Soto (Cerritos, Calif.) is the No. 2 Titan scorer with 96 points and 38 goals during the 1992 through 1994 seasons. He later was an assistant coach for the Titans and currently is on the UCLA staff.
DiGiamarino (Corona, Calif.) played only two years (1995-96) at Fullerton before signing a professional contract that took him to the MLS.
Ammann (Orange, Calif.) , the younger brother of current CSF Head Coach Bob Ammann, was the Titans' goalkeeper in 1991 through 1993. He holds the school record with 19 career shutouts including 9 in 1993. He had a long career in the MLS before suffering a career-ending arm injury.
Thomas (Trinidad) played two years (1996-97) for the Titans and was the MPSF Pacific Division Player of the Year in each season. His best season was 1996 when he scored 17 goals.
UCLA leads the first team with six selections and the Titans are the only other program with multiple first-team selections (one each for New Mexico, Denver, and San Jose State).
