University of Louisville men’s soccer announces three signings for Spring 2023

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville men’s soccer head coach John Michael Hayden has announced the addition of three student-athletes to the program for the spring semester.

Elijah Brijbasi, Gaetano D’Argento and Gage Guerra have all joined the Louisville program for the second semester.

“We are thrilled to have Elijah, Gaetano, and Gage join our group for this upcoming spring,” Hayden said. “Each player brings a set of unique skills that will certainly improve our squad. Equally important is that all three are people of high character.

“In our recruitment we set out to identify what I’ll call ‘Louisville Players’ and there is no doubt, from the little amount of time they’ve already been here, that they fit right into our program’s culture. I’m excited to see how they develop as players and men throughout their time with us.”

Brijbasi is a freshman that is enrolling early at UofL. A native of Baltimore, Md., Brijbasi graduated from Gilman High School and played for Pipeline Soccer Club. The midfielder tallied 10 goals and eight assists during his junior season at Gilman, and was an All-MIAA and Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection as a senior.

D’Argento joins the Louisville program after spending two seasons at Bowling Green. The defender appeared in 17 matches across two seasons, earning a pair of starts for the Falcons in 2022. D’Argento is originally from Wayne, Ill., and graduated from South Elgin High School.

The 2022 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, Guerra comes to Louisville after two years at Army. Guerra played in 33 matches, recording 15 goals and four assists during his two seasons. The forward earned Player of the Year honors after posting 10 goals and three assists in just 15 matches last fall. Guerra also earned United Soccer Coaches All-Atlantic Region honors and helped Army to its first Patriot League regular season championship in 26 seasons.

The trio of student-athletes join a Louisville program that went 9-6-3 in 2022, earning the program’s 14th NCAA Tournament appearance and third under Hayden’s leadership.
