Danielle Fotopoulos Head Women's Soccer Coach

With legendary status at the University of Florida, Danielle Fotopoulos is one of the most notable names in the sport of women’s soccer. She enters her sixth year at Eckerd this fall, having elevated the Tritons into contending status in the competitive Sunshine State Conference shortly following her arrival on campus.
The NCAA Division I all-time leading goal scorer and former U.S. National Team member has continued to take the necessary steps to build the program after being appointed to the position in the summer of 2010.
With a total of 33 wins (25 in her last three seasons) under her belt as head coach, Fotopoulos matched the team's single-win record with 10 victories in the 2012 campaign ('98, '00, '01). Following a strong end to the fall of 2011, the Tritons responded in a big way after being picked to finish ninth and last in the SSC Preseason Poll.
Under the leadership of Fotopoulos, EC claimed its first conference win since 2006 in late September 2012 and rattled off two more league victories before cashing in with the fifth seed in the Florida Blue SSC Championship, the program's first tournament berth. The Tritons went on to upset No. 4 seed Nova Southeastern University in the opening round.
The last three years have proven to be Fotopoulos's most successful with 25 wins over that span and two fifth-place finishes in conference play.
Fotopoulos, a former All-America selection with the Gators, arrived at Eckerd after serving on the U.S. U-14 National ID staff. She is also actively involved with the sport outside of Eckerd as the current head coach of the U-15 National Team.
In Gainesville, she was a two-time SEC Player of the Year at Florida and was the Soccer America Player of the Year in 1998 after leading the Gators to an NCAA championship.
Fotopoulos continued her career with U.S. women’s soccer and was a member of the 1999 FIFA World Cup championship squad. She continued her professional career in the Women’s United Soccer Association and was a two-time all-star selection.
She began her college coaching career in 2003, serving as co-head coach at Louisiana State University. After spending two seasons in Baton Rouge, she later became an assistant coach at her alma mater with the Gators in 2006.
Fotopoulos was inducted into UF’s Hall of Fame in 2008 and into the FHSAA Hall of Fame in 2014. She graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in 1999.
She and her husband, George, reside in Land O'Lakes and have four children: Alexia, Will, Michael and Demetri.

"I'm pulling for them so hard," Danielle Fotopoulos said.
Fotopoulos, 39, lives in Land O' Lakes with husband/soccer coach George and their children, Alexia, Will, Michael and Demetri. You ought to see those family pickup games. Fotopoulos is the head women's soccer coach at Eckerd College. She was a two-time All-American at Florida and scored the lone goal when the Gators won the national title in 1998. She remains the all-time goal scorer in NCAA history. In short, a legend.
...
And on July 10, 1999, Danielle Fotopoulos (nickname: Fotop) stood in the Rose Bowl with a medal around her neck, celebrating with other members of the last U.S. women's team to win the World Cup ... those iconic world beaters, a Title IX wave machine all by themselves, inspiring a generation of can-do athletes, including some of the players in today's game. The '99ers were a sensation from sea to shining sea.
"Everywhere you go, people tell you what they were doing, where they were when we won it," Fotopoulos said. "I don't think any of us at the time realized the impact it had on soccer, on sports, on women in general, or for the country."
Fotopoulos was a reserve forward for the 1999 champions. It was the last time the U.S. won the Cup. And she was watching in Germany four years ago when the American women were stunned by Japan in the final.
"They were hurting so bad," Fotopoulos said.
...
Fotopoulos remembers the locker room after, everyone taking swigs from bottles of champagne brought there by: President Bill Clinton.
...
"We flew on Air Force One with the female U.S. senators, with Chelsea and Hillary Clinton, chatting all the way down," Fotopoulos said.
...
"Now that I'm 40, I'm like, 'Oh, my word.' " Fotopoulos said. "What in the world was going on?"
...
When Fotopoulos thinks of that 1999 team, she thinks of what they always told each other. It's the same thing she tells her players at Eckerd or in the Tampa Bay United youth program. It's her message for young women - and young men.
"Dream big," Fotopoulos said. "If you can dream it, you can do it."
She thought of her friend Wambach, the world record-holder for international goals.
...
"One of the reasons I think they're doing so well is because of Abby's leadership," Fotopoulos said.
...
"I think it'll be huge for them to win, because they've felt like they've been living in the shadow of that '99 team," Fotopoulos said.
