Hello everyone!!! This is the official first post of the new FC Denver blog. My name is Daniel Valenzuela, most of you might already know me, but for those of you who don’t here is brief bio.
I was born and raised in Southern California, specifically Burbank, CA. I’ve played competitive soccer my entire life, including a short stint with the SDSU D1 program, and semi pro with the now defunct San Diego Gauchos. I moved out here to Denver to work on my masters during the winter of 2006, and in that time i met Eric Fulton, the director of FC Denver. We realized we had a similar passion for soccer and a similar vision of creating a one of a kind soccer club for adults. I left Denver for a few months to take care of some things back home in Cali, but i’m back now ready to take FC Denver to the next level, and start law school. I currently serve as a player/coach/director for the club, and i have now added official blogger to my list of duties.
So what should you expect on this blog? First and foremost, i hope to keep everyone updated on FC Denver events. You will also be able to find recaps of the club’s weekend soccer action. I hope to get interviews, guest bloggers, special features, pictures, video, international soccer news and commentary, and much more as the season progresses.
Please feel free leave any comments, suggestions, questions. Let me know what you want to see, and I’ll do my best to blog about it. Stay tuned for many more posts to come.
