Houston Attorney Inducted into Puerto Rico Soccer Hall of Fame

Benny Agosto Jr., a partner at the Houston personal injury law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, and former president of the Houston Bar Association, has been inducted into the Puerto Rico Soccer Hall of Fame. The Class of 2020 Soccer Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was held Dec.  3, 2020, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Agosto’s soccer career began in Puerto Rico, where he was a member of the Wesleyan Academy Eagles varsity soccer team and the El Remanso FC youth club soccer team (U19). While he was the goalkeeper, his high school soccer team made it to the final championship game for four consecutive years. During his second half of high school, he was also selected for the Puerto Rico Junior National Team and participated in pre-Pan American Games practice games and eventually in international tournaments with the Puerto Rico U19 national team. During his senior year, he was selected as a High School All-Star, one of the best soccer players in Puerto Rico.

In 1981, Agosto was awarded a full athletic scholarship to Houston Baptist University, where he played on the NCAA Div. I soccer team for four years. While attending HBU, Agosto started all four years and his team reached the conference championship each season. Some of his college soccer accolades include 1983 team captain, 1983 NCAA Div. I All-American nominee, and goalkeeper record holder for “saves and shut-outs” in one season and in his university career. During Agosto’s final year at HBU, his team managed to be ranked as one of the best teams in the United States (Top 20), with a national ranking of 17.
