Tomas Scorzafave has made the most of his junior year by earning Honor Roll status as a two-sport athlete at Humberview Secondary School.

The Grade 11 student-athlete—who has his sights on a US College soccer scholarship, a Kinesiology degree, and is currently studying for his SATs – has led the Huskies on both the volleyball court in the Fall and the soccer pitch this Spring.

Scorzafave’s leadership and athletic acumen have impressed Senior Boys Soccer Coach Gerald Watt.

“Tomas encourages his teammates, always gives 110%, displays exceptional technical abilities, and his hard work has greatly contributed to the early successes experienced so far this season.”

Aya Utahara, Humberview SS’s Senior Boys Volleyball coach, echoes his colleague’s assessments about Scorzafave’s aptitude and attitude as a sportsman.

“His quickness and intelligent plays. Tomas’s dedication to improve his skills is evident as is his leadership on and off the court.” 

The faculty at Humberview provided a similarly-glowing academic profile of the Huskies’ volleyball/soccer player.

Kendall Volpe, Scorzafave’s Grade 11 University Biology teacher and Humberview’s Athletic Director, noted that “Tomas is such a ray of light. He always has a positive attitude, he is determined, and a very hard worker. He is an absolute pleasure to teach.”

Amanda Bourdon, Tomas’s SHSM teacher, also extolled the Grade 11’s attributes as a learner.

“As a Health and Wellness SHSM student, Tomas was dedicated, hardworking, and a great leader for his classmates and peers.”

Against this backdrop of academic superlatives, Coach Watt elaborated on what impresses him the most about Scorzafave as a soccer player.

“He’s a natural leader. Tomas takes initiative with setting up practice drills, leading warmups, and communicating tactics with teammates. Most of all, he’s driven to succeed.”

Huskies Coach Utahara complimented Tomas’s “leadership on the volleyball court. Tomas leads by example and inspires his teammates to work hard to achieve excellence.” 

Two key performance moments so far in Scorzafave’s soccer season were recounted by Coach Watt: “Tomas played phenomenally throughout our first four games. He has consistently been one of our best performers this season. He scored two bangers in back-to-back games against Louise Arbour and Central Peel.”
