He was a standout as a senior on the Deacons squad. He played in 23 games, starting each one. He scored eight goals and added six assists. Argudo leaves college with 10 goals and 13 assists.
Argudo faces a challenge to make the roster. Crew SC’s recent 3rd round picks, including, Vince Cicciarelli, Tomas Gomez, Robert Kristo, and Reed Matte have failed to land on the roster.
