Hand’s Scott Testori Named National Soccer Player of the Year

Daniel Hand High School Senior Scott Testori was recently named the National Soccer Player of the Year. Testori, who has previously been named the Connecticut Player of the Year, All-American and All-New England for the past two seasons, is the first player from Connecticut to win the title. 

Testori, a forward, has helped lead Hand to numerous state championships. He will go on to play for UCONN next year. Hand Athletic Director Craig Semple said he, along with Coach Cumpstone, are very proud of all Testori’s successes.

“When he steps onto the pitch, Scott is so competitive, but he is also a sportsman,” he said. “If he knocks someone down, he picks them up. If he sees someone down, he is the first one over to pick him up. I’ve seen him do that for four years. He really represents our community and athletic program with a lot of pride and integrity.”
