STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC has partnered with Lee Hill & Johnston Insurors in Statesboro to highlight figures throughout the organization. Each week through the end of the 2020 season, Tormenta FC will showcase a different player or coach on the club’s official social media pages with ten profile questions.

Tormenta FC 's second profile is forward Pato Botello-Faz, who signed with the club in 2020 and is from Monterrey, Mexico. Botello-Faz and the rest of the Tormenta squad will play its final home match of the season on October 21 in Erk Russell Park.

1. What’s your greatest soccer achievement or memory?

My best soccer memory is scoring my first professional goal in front of my family and friends. Just being able to score in front of my parents and my friends was an unreal feeling.

2. Who is someone who inspires you?

My mom and dad. They are the most hard-working people that I know, and they inspire me to be just like them.

3. What’s something that makes you unique?

I think I have a unique sense of humor. Either you get it or you don’t, so it either goes really well or really bad.

4. What's a hobby you have outside of soccer?

I like playing video games like Call of Duty. It actually started during quarantine and now I play it every single day.

5. What would you sing at Karaoke night?

Something by Ozuna or Myke Towers, my two favorite artists, because one, it’s in Spanish so it’s easier for me, and two, I know almost every song by them.

6. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when people are not honest with me. I keep it real with everyone regardless if it’s good or bad, so when someone is not honest with me it really bothers me.

7. What was the last movie you watched and what did you think of it?

The Hangover... I can’t go into detail but it's a great movie lol.

8. If you had a slogan for your life, what would it be?

“Don’t give up.” I feel like I’ve been through so much in my life and so many difficult times that the easier thing would’ve been just to give up, but I kept going and made it to where I am right now because of that.

9. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

If I could live anywhere, I'd have to say Paris or Statesboro... both are very similar, but I feel Paris takes it because of the views... but a very tough decision.

10. What is your favorite meal to cook?

Tacos, any kind of tacos. With some salsa.
