Meet the Manager: Danielle Wilson, Real West

Information distributors. Mediators. Example-setters. Or as we like to think of them, League ambassadors. Indy City Futbol very much appreciates the fine folks who step up as team managers, and so we'd like to highlight as many of them as we can throughout this season.

Danielle Wilson, Real West


Years playing Indy City Futbol:

This is my rookie season.

Favorite ICF memory or moment that stands out?

When Brandon Jett pulled a John Terry on defense and collapsed on top of the ball to prevent a goal.

How has ICF made you feel more connected to the city/your community?

I live in Central State, and I love getting to share my neighborhood with everyone every week. It's so much fun to see so many people from all over the city come together to play soccer every week.

What's your team's secret weapon?

We're busy building our talent pipeline. Latest addition is Maxwell Schilling, joining the world just this past week. It's necessary; we are old and keep hurting ourselves.

Which professional wrestler do you most identify with?

Probably Hulk Hogan. I sometimes wear a bandana, so we're basically twins.

Who is your League rival?

We just want to be friends with everyone.

Why will your team raise the trophy this year?

Is that a rhetorical question?

Any team rituals?

Our favorite pre-game chant is "Not last!" - it really gets us motivated. It's important to set realistic goals.

What would the name of your team's debut album be?

West is Best

If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you want?

Avocado lime

Any last misc. comments/memories/ramblings/grievances?

I only wish I had joined the league sooner. ICF rocks!
