Cayman Tamez has signed a national letter of intent to attend UTEP and compete with the Miner soccer program beginning with the 2020 fall season, UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun announced Thursday.
“We are excited for Cayman to join our program,” Balogun said. “She will compete with our team right away, but maybe even more importantly will fit the culture we are building here. She’s most comfortable as a defensive center mid but has a lot of versatility and is constantly looking for ways to improve her game and team.”
Tamez has played and started in all 45 appearances with the LA Galaxy-San Diego Development Academy program over the last two years. She grew up in Flower Mound, Texas, where she played ECNL with Solar, FC Dallas and D’Feeters Soccer club, later moving to California to train and compete with the LA Galaxy-San Diego as a freshman in high school.
She is also an All CIF honoree while competing with her high school, Tamez lives with her mom (Myre) and sister (Ceagan) and also has a brother (EJ)
Tamez says picked UTEP because of its soccer program and believes it will be a great fit on and off the field.
