The Tacoma Stars announce the return of international soccer player and Washington native Mike Ramos to the roster for the 2018-19 Major Arena Soccer League season.

In 21 appearances for the Stars, Ramos netted 11 goals along with five assists during the 2015-16 MASL regular season and playoffs.

Per League and team policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Ramos has found success in the indoor and outdoor game. A Seattle University alum, he was selected by Toronto FC in the 2015 Major League Soccer draft. Along with games with the Seattle Sounders FC 2, Ramos has seen action with the Puerto Rico National Team as well.

Stars coaches will be looking for Ramos to increase the offensive production of the team this coming season.

“Mike represents the Northwest and the Tacoma Stars,” coach Darren Sawatzky said. “He was a huge piece of the 2.0 version of professional indoor soccer here, and he can score goals. We are very excited to bring Mike home and have him light up the stat column for us.”
