BERKELEY - Former California goalkeeper Mike Oseguera joined the professional ranks when the California Cougars selected him in today's Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) Draft. The Cougars selected Oseguera in the sixth round and 35th overall.
"Mike has all the attributes to be a great indoor soccer goalkeeper," Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said. "There's no goalkeeper in the country that has the foot skills that he possesses. We are extremely excited for Mike that his career at Cal has ended on such a high note, with him being drafted into the MISL."
As a redshirt freshman in 2003, Oseguera started 17 of 18 games, compiled a 0.96 goals-against average and collected seven shutouts. Both his GAA and shutouts total tied him for second in the Pac-10. Oseguera also earned honorable mention Pac-10 honors.
The Huntington Beach, Calif., product made a big impact as a junior in the 2005 season, when he scored the gamewinning penalty kick against Santa Clara in the second round of the NCAA College Cup.
After his freshman season, Oseguera played in 14 games, including seven games as a senior in 2006, when the Golden Bears reached the third round of the NCAA College Cup.
