Lane United is proud to announce the hiring of Dani Foxhoven as Director of Media and Development.
Dani grew up in Colorado playing for the Colorado Rush where she led her team to two national championships in 2007 and 2008. She then attended the University of Portland, becoming the fourth highest goal scorer in school history and was the highest point getter in the country after her sophomore year. She graduated in 3 years with a degree in business, marketing and management.
After graduation, Dani played for FC Energy in Voronezh, Russia in the Russian Premier League and Champions League. When she completed her year long contract with FC Energy she returned home to the newly founded NWSL to play for the Portland Thorns. With current Lane United head coach John Galas serving as Assistant Coach, the Thorns won the inaugural NWSL national championship, with Foxhoven coming off the bench to earn a starting position and end up fifth in points for the team.
“I am excited to work with Dani as we grow the club in this community. Knowing first-hand her on-field work ethic, I am thrilled to now have her on the media and development side of our operation.” said Coach Galas
For the last two years Dani has been head coach at Purdue Northwest University outside of Chicago, IL. On moving back to her northwest roots, Foxhoven says ”I am so excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest and working with John Galas again after having played for him. I know this club has such a bright future and I am proud to be a part of it! ”
Dani has started work remotely, but will be in attendance at Lane United’s Cocktails & Classics event on March 15, giving all Reds fans the opportunity to come out and meet her. “With more and more of my time dedicated to the growth of our club and securing our future in the professional ranks at Civic Park, I feel I have found a perfect candidate to bring into the club and lead our media and community development efforts.” said LUFC’s Managing Director Dave Galas.
Lane United FC midfielder and Oregon State graduate Will Seymore has been called up to play in the Vancouver Whitecaps organization. Seymore had already been selected in the 2015 Major League Soccer SuperDraft with a third-round pick by FC Dallas, but has been playing with Lane United since the beginning of the PDL season. On Monday, he got the call to join Vancouver, starting with their Whitecaps 2 team, which plays one rung below the MLS in the USL.
Lane United head coach John Galas says he thinks there is “little chance” Seymore will be returning to the Reds following this progression. “We’re thrilled for Will and want to thank him for everything he’s contributed to our club so far this season. He’s now the second player that has gone straight from us into the pros (after Khiry Shelton) and that’s something that everyone in the organization can be proud of. Will has been a model young professional and we wish him all the best in his career.”
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Lane United,” Seymore said earlier today. “The culture, the club the fans — there’s real passion here at Lane and in the community. It’s really a testament to the amount of work and preparation Dave and John (Galas) and the staff have put in and committed to this club and really shows where the organization is headed. Even though this has been a tough season so far and we haven’t gotten the results we’ve wanted, the philosophy John has been training us with really rewarded our playing style.”
