Life After Soccer: Danielle Fotopoulos

“Life After Soccer” Wow! I do have life after soccer, however, it still involves the game that has helped me along my path of life I am now a wife of a soccer coach, a mom of three, almost four, soccer players, and for my career path, I have become a head coach at Eckerd College!

So, I have continued my life, however, it is far from soccer. I am into soccer because it is not what I choose to do; it is part of the culture of my family. We love soccer and breath it every day, because it is part of our family!

We love Christ first, and our family is United in Him! However, we are also members of the Tampa Bay United soccer club, too. So, in short, I have “Life After Soccer”, but soccer and life are not two different things for me, because soccer is not just what we do as a family, it is how we share Christ with others and we see soccer as an opportunity for unity and hope for all people!

Thank you for the opporutnity to share my life with others!

Peace and Blessings,
Danielle Fotopoulos
