Joe Sofia and Victor Munoz Selected in 2014 MLS SuperDraft
By: UCLA Athletics

UCLA seniors Joe Sofia and Victor Munoz were each selected in the second round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft on Thursday, with Sofia going to the San Jose at pick No. 28 and Munoz going to D.C. United at pick No. 29.

Sofia and Munoz are the 28th and 29th MLS selections in head coach Jorge Salcedo's tenure as head coach at UCLA.

The Bruins have now totaled 63 draft picks in the SuperDraft's 19-year history, which is 21 more than the second place school, Maryland. In addition, 66 Bruins have played in MLS in the league's 18 years of existence, more than any other school in the nation by far. A total of 28 Bruins have won at least one MLS Cup as either a player or head coach as well, including in each of the last 10 years.

Sofia, who hails from Dove Canyon, Calif. played in 19 of UCLA’s 20 matches this season while serving as the anchor of the back line. He captained the Bruins to the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003, all while helping the team earn seven shutouts on the season. Additionally, Sofia led all of UCLA’s position players in minutes with 1,714 and scored one goal in his 19 matches. In his four-year UCLA career, Sofia played in 82 matches, making 80 starts, and was a three-time All-Pac-12 selection. He scored five goals and logged eight assists while helping the Bruins reach the NCAA College Cup semifinals in 2011.

Munoz, a native of Madrid, Spain, appeared in 55 games in three seasons in Westwood after transferring from Iona after his freshman year. He scored three goals and notched 21 assists in his UCLA career, earning All-Pac-12 honors twice. Munoz finished tied for third on the team in points (1 g, 8 a) in 2013 while tying for the team lead in assists, also good for a tie for third in the Pac-12.
