A St. John’s Red Storm soccer player is blasting off to the Cosmos.

The New York Cosmos professional soccer team announced the signing of St. John’s senior midfielder and captain Jimmy Mulligan on Friday. The team, which won the NASL championship last year following a 30-year hiatus in the league, believes Mulligan will be a key role player.

“Jimmy is a young, promising midfielder who brings a lot of energy on the field,” Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese said. “He’ll provide good depth on the squad and help add some healthy competition.”

Mulligan, 22, finished his Red Storm career by earning both third team NSCAA All-Northeast Region accolades and second team All-BIG EAST honors. In his senior year, Mulligan helped lead St. John’s to the second round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Mulligan was also the first St. John’s player to earn NSCAA/Adidas Scholar All-America honors since 2008.

“For any kid growing up it’s a dream to play for their local team,” Mulligan said. “As a New Yorker, I’m thrilled to be signing for the Cosmos and playing for a team with such a revered history.”
