2014 Far West Region

Victor Torres

Male Young Referee of the Year

Congratulations are extended to Victor Torres who has been selected as the Far West Region Male Young Referee of the Year.  Victor was selected from the nominees from the other states in Region IV based on his experienced on and off the soccer field not only as a Referee, but his contributions in the community and school.

Victor's response was "My experience as a referee these past 4 years has given me a new perspective on the world as I used to see it. I have learned that even when someone else makes mistakes, either on my behalf or, we have to learn to coop with the mistakes made and make the best out of it. I have learned to love being a referee even if at times it is rough but I do plan on learning more and also becoming a state referee this upcoming year. Also since I am a student at Metropolitan State University and a soccer coach at KIPP Montebello, this award has given me something to show the kids I coach that with hard work, effort and dedication many more doors open up for us in the future."

Victor will represent Colorado and the Far West Region at the US Youth Soccer Workshop at the NSCAA Convention which will take place in January 2015 in Philadelphia. There he will meet the other Young Referees of the Year from the other three Regions. He is a candidate to be selected as the US Youth Soccer Male Young Referee of the Year.  We wish the best to Victor.
