“Daemon’s made the best of his 404 opportunities to bridge the gap between collegiate and pro. Daemon has a rare skill set at his position and his improvement in physicality will help him compete at the next level,” said General Manager, Scott Lawrence.
Torres was brought into the pathway404 academy program because of his exceptional work rate, shot-calling abilities in the set-piece, and skills in the contact tackle area.

I can’t thank my family, the Pathway 404 coaching staff, and Marcus Calloway for supporting me through my development this fall. Looking forward to getting after it with the squad in 2021.”
