San Antonio FC has re-signed forward Ever Guzman for the 2018 USL season, the club announced on Tuesday afternoon.
Guzman joined SAFC late in the season and finished the 2017 campaign with four goals and an assist, including the game-winning penalty kick in the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Tulsa Roughnecks at Toyota Field.
“We are excited that Ever is coming back to San Antonio FC for a second season,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell through a team press release. “He impressed the coaching staff with his performances towards the end of last season and scored some valuable goals down the stretch for us. We look forward to having a full preseason with Ever and incorporating him into the 2018 team.”
Guzman’s signing will see re-join forces with Cesar Elizondo, who also will be back in 2018. Together, the duo combined for 10 goals during the course of the season. That number will likely rise now that Guzman will part of Powell’s lineup for an entire season.
The 29-year-old previous played in Mexico with Monarcas Morelia since 2004. Most recently he was with Correcaminos UAT in Ascenso MX, scoring 10 goals in 16 games.
“I’m very happy to return to San Antonio FC” said Guzman via a team release. “I’m thankful towards the fans and the front office for making it happen and for the support they’ve shown me here. We had a great campaign last season and I’m looking forward to making 2018 even better.”
Guzman is the third SAFC confirmed for the 2018 season, joining Elizondo and goalkeeper Diego Restrepo.
