Recently the Bulls added a kicker from Robinson High School in Tampa named Delbert Alvarado. Last season he was 5-for-7 on field goals, 38.7 punt average and had a game winning field goal against Palmetto. Alvarado was also selected to the Hillsborough County All-Star game where USFnation.com caught up with him.
Why did you choose USF?
"It's close to home, close to my family and I have always wanted to play for South Florida." Alvarado says, "Its been a dream of mine since my freshman year to play for USF, plus my friends can come watch me. Where as if I went somewhere else they probably couldn't do that. I like being a hometown boy."
How did the commitment go down?
"Coach Leavitt called me one day at lunch and offered me. I was all excited so I called my parents right away and then talked to my coaches. They all told me "this is what I've always wanted and that I should go for it." I called him back after school and told him I wanted to verbally commit."
What positions do you play?
"I kick and punt."
What will you try to do at USF?
"Everything I can!"
How are your grades?
"I have a 4.0 GPA and my SAT/ACT scores are right where they need to be."
What are you going to do in the off-season?
"I'm going to work hard. I play soccer for a club team, but I'm also kicking at least 50 to 100 balls a day. There is always room for improvement."
