Less than a week after four San Luis Obispo High student-athletes were honored for advancing their sports careers in various capacities at Cal Poly, Mustangs men’s soccer coach Steve Sampson announced a fifth during his Tuesday news conference.
Peter Delkeskamp, an attacking center midfielder for the Tigers, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play at Cal Poly, Sampson said.
“Peter is an incredible player, has incredible vision on the field, a very attacking-minded player,” Sampson said. “But he’s also an outstanding student with a 4.6 GPA and high test scores.
“I think he’s going to be a great fit for Cal Poly men’s soccer team.”
Never miss a local story.
Sampson said Delkes-kamp — a three-star recruit on TopDrawerSoccer.com — was the only one of the four-man recruiting class announced by the school that the new coach was directly involved in recruiting.
