Prost Amerika is happy to announce the addition of a new columnist.
The captain of the Kitsap Pumas victorious PDL national championship side Daniel Scott will be writing for us in 2012.
Daniel is now playing for Tampa Bay Rowdies in Florida where a real legend in English football, former Luton Town hero and England international Ricky Hill is the head coach.
Daniel has worked alongside us before in the Sounders commentary box covering MLS games on match days but is looking forward to expressing his own views and relating his own experiences.
“Writing has always been something that appealed to me. Most professional players have thoughts on the game, especially at this most exciting point in its American development.When I was at the Pumas, many of the guys read Prost’s coverage of our games and we really appreciated it.
I will always remember my time in Cascadia fondly. Obviously with Zach still being a Sounder, I retain a deep connection through him but writing here gives me a great way of retaining and strengthening that connection with a part of the world I truly love.
There are two former Portland Timbers at the club here in Florida, David Hayes and Keith Savage, so football in Cascadia is never too far from our minds.”
In his first article, Daniel will be recalling the proudest day in Scott family history when he and his brother Zach were opposing captains in last years US Open Cup tie between the Kitsap Pumas and Sounders FC.
Daniel joins former Portland Timbers skipper Ian Joy and Stanley Holmes as regular Prost Amerika columnists.
We hope to have news of more exciting additions to our growing stable in the near future so we can bring you the best soccer writing available.
