National Letter of Intent Day

February 5th marked the first day that high school student-athletes from certain sports could sign their National Letter of Intent, indicating their college of choice.

The San Clemente Triton Football Team was well represented and joined friends, fellow students, family and staff in a celebration of their academic and athletic achievements. The specific signings are:

  • Jason Wright – Stony Brook
  • Blake Gonzalez – Boise St,
  • Peyton Garrett – High Point University (Football & Lacrosse)
  • Kelsey Benoit – University of Texas San Antonio (Football & Track)

For the Tritons who committed, the day served as a launching point as they continue on to the next level.

Senior tight end Jason Wright was recruited by both Villanova and Stony Brook University to play football, but the senior ultimately decided on Stony Brook. Wright found the programs’s offensive schemes were a better fit for his playing style as a mobile, versatile tight end.

“I really love the coaching staff and their offense is perfect for tight ends. Their tight ends do everything for their team. The tight ends come in motion, run routes and do everything so I felt like it was a perfect fit for me,” Wright said.

Wright plans to major in psychology and minor in music technology, an area of study that made the school more enticing to him. Wright plays drums for his hard rock and metal band, Industria, and produces his own music on a computer program at home.
