Today we officially part ways with Leonardo "Torres" De Souza from our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
After much success in ESEA Main Season 31 and various online qualifiers/tournaments; Torres had requested to step down from the team. Due to the personal and severity of the issues pertaining family, we respectfully had sent Torres back home on the 17th of June.
"Torres came to the Whalers without skipping a beat. We literally got him on a plane four (4) days after talking and signing contracts early this year (March). I miss him a lot because he's that type of person that leaves a good mark on everyone he comes in contact with. He knows our doors are open to him in the future, but I am a family first man and understand where his head, and heart is at." Diego Freitas - CEO New England Whalers
We wish Torres and his family all the best in his future endeavors. He leaves a strong mark on our team and org with his infectious personality and extremely hard working ethic.
Tamo junto "Torresmo"!
