Major Arena Soccer League veteran Jamael Cox will be back with the Tacoma Stars for the 2018-19 season.

Cox signed last week with the Kent-based club. Per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Cox, a Tacoma native, won a state championship with Stadium High School in 2010. His resume also includes a trial with the Glasgow Rangers of the Scottish Premier League and playing with the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the North American Soccer League.

Cox appeared in 17 regular-season matches last season and had his best MASL offensive point total with 18 (13 goals, five assists). He added three goals in three playoff games. For his career, Cox has 48 points (34 goals, 14 assists) in 55 games played.

“Jamael could be the fastest player in the league and when he is in the mood, he can score goals at will,” said Darren Sawatzky, Stars coach and general manager. “Securing him for the next couple years was important for us, and we hope to see him in the top of our division scoring goals. Having local players developed here is key to our brand and community connection and Jamael is a very talented player.”

The Stars kick off the season on Saturday, Dec. 1 against the Turlock Express at the accesso ShoWare Center. For tickets, call 1-844-STARS-84 or go to tacomastars.com.
