Former CU quarterback Mike Moschetti, who was Torres’ coach at La Mirada (Calif.) High School, didn’t hide his disappointment over Torres’ decision.
Moschetti told the Times-Call that Torres “couldn’t handle it; he couldn’t handle being away from home.”
“I called (Torres’) dad, and his dad said he’s not coming back (to CU).”
Moschetti relayed that message to Hawkins and Hagan. Moschetti said Torres never talked to Hagan or Hawkins before leaving and hasn’t contacted them since. Moschetti said Torres won’t return his calls, either.
“What he did to coach Hawkins and Hagan and the rest of the football team in general is inexcusable,” Moschetti said. “Colorado is better off without him. You can’t count on someone like that.”
Moschetti said he has heard that Torres would like to play football at a junior college near his hometown.
