The Houston sports landscape will forever change on April 12, 2014 when the Houston Dash play their first regular season game ever. Another set of hometown heroes will put on a uniform and defend our city’s pride. However, for only the second time in history, it won’t be a set of male heroes, but one composed of women. I can list a million reasons why that fact alone is important but fellow House of Houston staff writer Hal Kaiser already did a great job at it. If you haven’t already purchased tickets, I suggest you go purchase some as quickly as possible, since there are only around 1000 tickets remaining, so you can be a part of history.
It is a difficult task to start following a new team. Sometimes it may even be difficult to become emotionally invested in a team that has no “superstars” or well-known, mainstream players. However, I’m going to help you become invested in the team by spotlighting three players that will play a pivotal role in the Houston Dash’s inaugural season and have an interesting history.
