SAM: South Windsor’s Jones-Torregosa

Peter is impressive in the classroom and on the field. In class, he has a 3.91 unweighted GPA and is a member of the National Honor Society. He is a varsity soccer player for the Bobcats and captain of the varsity soccer team.

How Peter prepares for a game: I always listen to music to prepare myself. I try to focus on the task at hand, whether that is a specific strategy or just a general game plan. Above all, I just try to relax myself and get ready to play.

Peter’s most memorable moment in a Bobcats uniform: My most memorable moment was taking the field for the first time, representing the varsity soccer team. I have had significant problems with concussions in the past, leaving me unable to play soccer since 8th grade. This summer, I was finally medically cleared and I had to train extensively just to make the team. Playing for this team was a dream of mine since I was very young, so to finally wear the Bobcat uniform was surreal.

Peter’s favorite pro athlete: My favorite professional athlete is Landon Donovan. I have looked up to him my entire life; I’ve always respected his leadership and incredible work ethic.

Peter’s college plans: I am hoping to attend either Cornell University or the University of Southern California. I hope to play club soccer throughout my college years.
