2015 was a successful season for Temple Men’s Soccer, thanks in no small part to the play of Junior Midfielder Kevin Klett.

Klett started 18 of the 19 games played this season, tallying three assists on the season. His first career assist came in a win against Yale on September 13th. Klett played the full 90 minutes in 13 games this season, including playing 110 minutes in games against Northeastern, and Delaware.

Klett blasted four shots on goal on the season. His strongest performance of the season came on September 23rd, against La Salle University. Klett tallied an assist and a shot on goal leading the Owls to a 4-1 victory.

Klett began his Collegiate career at Valparaiso, where he appeared in a total of 15 games throughout his Freshman, and Sophomore seasons. He was named to the Horizon League All-Freshman Team in 2013. Klett transferred to Temple following his sophomore season at Valparaiso.

A Muncie, Indiana native, Klett attended Burriss High School, where he was a four year letter winner. He helped lead Burris to its first Sectional Championship as a Junior. Klett was also selected as Offensive Player of the Year in his freshman, and sophomore seasons. Klett was a part of two state championship teams with his club team, Carmel United.

Klett was named to Temple’s President’s Honor Roll in his first season at Temple for achieving a GPA of at least 3.5. Klett majors in speech, language, and hearing science.

Klett will look to continue his stellar play in 2016, and lead the Owls to another successful season in his senior campaign.
