The SF State men’s soccer team finished with a winning record for their second consecutive season, the first time they have done so in 35 years. Center back Max Talbert and forward Jakob Velega are both seniors who played their last season as Gators this fall. Both were pivotal to the Gators resurgence in the California Collegiate Athletics Association.
Forward Jakob Velega played for the Gators from 2012 to 2015. He played six games in 2012 and was named Gator Scholar-Athlete. In 2013 Velega played in 16 matches and had an assist. The following year became his breakout year where he was second on the team with four goals and nine points. He also had one assist in 2014. This season, Velega scored two goals, which was good for four points, which ranked fifth on the team.
