Villegas Signs With UC-Merced!
CenCal Cosmos 02 Boys Grey NPL player, Luis Villegas, joins Cosmos alumni, Brycen Miller and 02B Grey NPL teammate Freddy Bautista in his commitment to play for UC Merced next year.
Luis will compete for the Bobcats (who reached the NAIA Sweet Sixteen last year) in the California Pacific Conference.
“Being at Cosmos the past three years helped exposed me to a more competitive aspect of soccer through the NPL. This year coach Ivan demanded more responsibility from us as players both on and off the training grounds. I will need that mentality now that I am entering the collegiate level of soccer." Luis said.
DOC Kevin Botterill has this to say about Luis. “Luis is a great kid and a very physically and technically talented player. He has grown in his decision-making and willingness to take risks over the last 3 years and is ready to make an immediate impact at UC-Merced.”
