Alisandro accepts Purdue offer

Former Trinity High School quarterback/cornerback Botros Alisandro has accepted a full scholarship from Purdue.

Alisandro, a 20-year-old Manchester resident, was recruited to play cornerback. He spent last season at Snow Junior College in Ephraim, Utah.

“It wasn’t a hard decision at all,” Alisandro said. “That’s a Power 5 school right there. “Big time … playing in the Big Ten.

“It happened so fast. I still haven’t been able to take it all in. I report there in a couple weeks. Still crazy to think about the fact that I’m going to be a Boilermaker.”

He was better known as Peter Alisandro – Botros is Arabic for Peter – when he led Trinity to the Division II championship in 2019, his junior season. After a senior season disrupted by COVID, he played in the CHaD New Hampshire East-West All-Star Game and then spurned offers from Division II and Division III programs and enrolled at ASA Brooklyn to play junior college football. 

ASA Brooklyn canceled its 2020 and 2021 seasons because of the pandemic, however, so he never played football there. After taking the fall semester off in 2021, Alisandro transferred to Snow Junior College and joined the program as a walk-on, but earned a scholarship last fall. 

Alisandro, who is 6-foot-1 and 181 pounds, also had offers from Rhode Island, Central Connecticut State, LIU, Prairie View and Tarleton. He has three years of athletic eligibility remaining, not including his redshirt season.

“I’ve worked out with a lot of D1 athletes throughout high school and I just knew where they were at and where I was at, and I knew I had that D1 talent,” Alisandro said. “Growing up I always knew I was going to be a Division I player.”
