SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Benedictine graduate Tristan DeLoach had his final day with Tormenta FC on Monday. On Friday, he left for Clemson to continue his soccer career, becoming the first academy pro player to leave the club for the college ranks.

He said when he signed, he never expected he would be playing with the first team, but added that the club has prepared him for college in many ways; from being away from family and friends, to learning from older teammates on and off the pitch, giving him the confidence he needed heading into the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“They’re much older, so they’ve had a lot more life experience than me, and there’s so many guys on the team, so just taking little things or big things from each of them, you can learn so much, and I tried to do that as best as I could,” DeLoach said.

When asked if he may return to Tormenta as a true professional after his collegiate days, he said you can never rule anything out.
