I’m Dan Anderson from Pietermaritzburg South Africa. I studied an accountancy degree at
and am now doing my training articles in London, England. Seeing what an impact the US
college opportunity had on
Denin as well as other friends has made me want to see more people get to experience that
opportunity and soccer creates
the perfect avenue to do that through. Apparently the college experience is just like it is
in the movies!
I’m Denin Spriggs from the small town of Matatiele in the Eastern Cape province of South
Africa. I went to St Charles College
in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, where I played my first ever refereed soccer game. I
started my soccer career when I first
signed for Matatiele Hotspurs in Matatiele, South Africa. Chasing my dreams I left to
England to join an independent academy.
From there on I spent time in France at Ligue 1 Academies and eventually landed up in
Eastern Europe in Latvia playing in the
second division. Having no degree, I thought it would be best for my future to pursue soccer
and study at the same time, and
accepting a soccer scholarship in the United States has been the best decision yet. Living
in America you realize how fast soccer
is growing and I have signed for a semi-professional team in Oklahoma. Soccer in America is
something I want to make a possibility
for as many driven and dedicated soccer players as possible.
