Two Former Bruins Head U.S. Olympic Men's Soccer Team
By: UCLA Athletics

Aug. 15, 2000

Former UCLA standouts Peter Vagenas (1996-1999) and Frankie Hejduk (1992-1994) were named to the U.S. Olympic Men's Soccer Team.

Vagenas, a 1999 Player of the Year nominee and a four-time all-conference selection, finished his career at UCLA with 15 goals and 30 assists. The 30 assists rank fifth on UCLA's all-time career list. The midfielder from Pasadena, CA leads all current U-23 players with 14 career caps. He also captained the U.S. team at the 1999 Pan American Games, leading the team to a bronze medal.

Hejduk, an NSCAA All-American in 1994, scored six goals and eight assists in his three-year career as a Bruin. He went on to play in the 1996 Olympic Games, was a 1998 MLS All-Star with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and is currently playing for German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen. In his career, Hejduk has totaled 29 caps with the full national team and 30 with the U-23 team.

Hejduk becomes the first UCLA soccer player ever selected to two Olympic teams. Vagenas becomes the 13th Bruin Olympian since 1984.
