Pilots Men's Soccer Add Defender Daniel Peace
After a couple weeks since the last signing for the men's soccer team, head coach Joseph Passi has added defender Daniel Peace.
The 5'11" outside back comes to the Providence campus from Thunder Bay, Ontario. He is currently finishing his last year at St. Ignatius High School.
Peace last played for the well known club team Thunder Bay Chill. Known for his ball control, aggressive defending and communication on the pitch, Peace also brings a long resume of awards and achievements to the team. He was given the Coaches Award in 2016 and 2019 as well as won the Golden Boy Championship in 2019 and OFSAA bronze medal in 2018.
"I am excited to begin my first season as a Pilot and eager to improve my skills with Coach Passi and my new teammates," says Peace. "I am grateful for everyone who has helped me along the way."
Peace has a heart for ministry and regularly volunteers for local kids camps and programs. He plans on pursuing Biblical and Theological Studies here at Providence.
Head coach Passi shared his excitement on his newest recruit by saying, "I started talking to Daniel about coming to Providence over a year ago; to have him finally commit is awesome. Daniel is a high-character person who sets high goals and achieves them. He has maintained high standards both on and off the field and will bring the same standards to our program. He's a talented player who is comfortable on the ball and plays with a high soccer IQ. He will make an immediate impact on our program. We're excited to have him."
Welcome to the Pilot family Daniel!
