Midfielder Luca Deza isn't sticking around for a spring season in 2021.

The California(w) senior officially turned pro in December, signing a contract with Sevilla FC in Spain.

An attacking midfielder from Northern California, Deza starred at De Anza Force before joining Cal in 2017. She made 54 appearances for the Pac-12 program in three seasons, scoring nine goals and adding nice assists. Like the entire Golden Bears program, Deza enjoyed a strong 2019, making 18 appearances (16 starts) while scoring five goals and setting up three more in what is now her final season in college.

Her father Andres is the head coach at Bay Area FC, having previously steered top club sides at De Anza Force and the San Jose Earthquakes Girls Academy.

While mostly an attacking midfielder at club and in college, Deza could see time at outside back, according to a recent interview with the Fresh out of College podcast.
