Former UW soccer star gives back to Houston community
Former University of Washington soccer standout Craig Waibel has played professional soccer since 1999, defying the critics to become one of the most respected veterans in Major League Soccer. He is currently in his eighth season with the Houston Dynamo (previously the San Jose Earthquakes, which moved to Houston in 2006).
The Houston Chroncle ran this great story on Waibel today, which included these comments from longtime teammate Eddie Robinson:
"A lot of people don't see the stuff that he does off the field. He's a selfless person off the field. Yeah, he's a Dynamo player, but I guarantee you that if you ask him how he wants to be remembered it's probably what he does for kids at Texas Children's Hospital.
"The guy is tireless sometimes. I don't know how he does it. He puts in all the time over there and spends time with his kid. He's just a great guy, and he's good to have around. He's somebody that you're not just happy to call your friend, but proud to call your friend. He's somebody that you can take things from his character and put into your life and know that you're a better person."
