Reinaldo Soto

Induction Class Of 2022

Back To Inductee List

A 1999 Bristol Eastern High graduate, he is considered one of Bristol’s all-time successful scholastic football players.

The three-time first team All-State choice held several school marks in the sport, and he remains among the leaders in several categories.

The running back/defensive back scored a then state record 33 touchdowns as a sophomore and his all-around play gave him the top headlines when the Bristol Press posted its annual year-end capsule for 1996.

His career 5,161 rushing yards are a school record and remain second all-time in Bristol history at the time of his 2022 induction into the BSHOF. His 74 career touchdowns are also a BEHS best and second in the city.

A two-sport athlete, he was a team captain in basketball as a senior. He received a scholarship to play football for CCSU, but eventually left to serve in the U.S. Navy. He later became involved in youth sports.
