So far, GM Michael Woods has been quiet in the offseason, but has been picking things up as of late. These two signings put the roster up to 62 – four higher than the required count for training camp, which begins in March.
K Luis Aguilar
Anyone with familiarity in the spring football world knows the name Luis Aguilar. Aguilar joined the Philadelphia Stars midseason in 2022, following some special teams issues that the organization was dealing with.
Luis instantly stabilized the ship, proving to be one of the most consistent kickers in the USFL. He helped lead the Stars to a Championship berth in 2022, ultimately falling just short against Birmingham. Aguilar finished the 2022 season going 8-10 on field goal attempts, with a long of 49.

In 2023, Luis Aguilar took his game to a new level. He led the entire league in total kicking points, with 94 on the season. During a time where the Stars struggled to score touchdowns, Luis was the sole offensive piece scoring points for the team.
One of his outstanding performances came during week five, in a win against the New Jersey Generals. Luis went 8-8 on the day, and knocked through a 55 yard game winner as time expired.
The @USFLStars have re-signed All-USFL kicker Luis Aguilar, announced by the team tonight.
