Mexico: Fundidores de Monterrey re-sign WR Torin Justice for 2023 season

The Fundidores de Monterrey of Mexico’s Liga de Fútbol Americano Profesional, LFA, have re-signed wide receiver Torin Justice for the 2023 season.

The 6’3″, 195-pound native of Katy, Texas is returning for his second season in Mexico. Last season, the Fundidores won the Tazón México V, beating the Gallos Negros de Querétaro for their first championship in franchise history. Now Justice is trying to help them become the first LFA team to win back-to-back titles since the Mayas CDMX did it in 2016 and 2017.

The 25-year-old wideout only played the back half of the season in 2022 but made the most of it in every way. In his three regular season games with Monterrey, he had 16 receptions for 220 yards and seven touchdowns; the latter of which led the league.

Prior to arriving in Mexico, he spent two seasons (2016-17, 2017-18) playing for Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas before moving on to Southwestern Oklahoma State University (Div. II) where in his senior season in 2021, he had 39 receptions for 668 yards and eight touchdowns.
