On The U23s

We've got a new writer on the books!! Please give a warm DKCU welcome to our very own U23s keeper Daniel Hill!! In his debut post, Dan gives us the lowdown on how he ended up with DKCU, what training is like, and his hopes for this season. If you like what he has to say, let us know, cos we are hoping for more of this stuff!!


It was the summer of 2017, and I was kicking around with some friends when I first heard there was a semi-pro soccer club coming to Dekalb. The rush of excitement that I could possibly play for a local semi-professional club quickly shrank when I realized I had missed tryouts.

I was a seventeen-year-old happy-go-lucky goalkeeper at the time, playing soccer for a small home-school organization in the fall and for my club during pretty much the rest of the year.
