KENILWORTH, NJ – Tyler Pires and Sofia Lospinoso have been named this week’s David Brearley High School Athletes of the Week.
Tyler Pires is seventeen years old and plays forward and winger on the David Brearley Varsity Soccer Team. He began playing soccer when he was five. His two best sports memories include him scoring a bicycle kick against Union Catholic from 15 yards out and the ball going upper 90 and scoring in the semi-final vs Technology High School. “I remember hitting the ball with my left foot and it going in. Even though we lost the game, scoring that goal and seeing my teammates running towards me and everyone cheering gave me a feeling I could never describe. I’m forever thankful to play with such an amazing team.” Some of Tyler’s other hobbies are dancing, helping his dad coach his soccer team, and watching FC Porto.
Sofia Lospinoso is a senior and has been on the varsity soccer team at David Brearley High School since her freshman year. Her love for the game started when she was five years old. At Brearley, she has earned a four-year varsity letter and county recognition every year. Sofia is a goalkeeper and says her best sports memory occurred earlier this season. “I was able to save the first penalty and then score the last one for my team to win the game over Summit in the County Tournament.” This was a proud moment for her. When Sofia is not playing soccer, she enjoys surfing in the summer, coaching young children, and spending time with her friends and family.
