PSC Tryout player signs in USL League One

By PSC, 05/30/24, 10:00AM PDT


2024 Colorado Combine Attendee Dane Valenti has signed with USL League One team, Northern Colorado Hailstorm. The 2007 Las Vegas based player has signed an academy contract with the club and will also train with the first team after standing out during February's pro combine held at the Hailstorm training facility.

Dane stood out immediately on day 1 to all of the pro coaches including Hailstorm Head Coach, Eamon Zayed and Assistant, Colin Falvey. The 16 year old was competing against more established, senior players that had more physical presence but he immediately caught the eye in the first game with his technical ability, decision making, hard work and creativity in possession of the ball.

The Hailstorm are looking for young talented players that have the potential to break into the first team in the coming years and Dane is now the third PSC Combine player to sign with the League 1 club offering a great opportunity and pathway for top young players that work within PSC programs. PSC players, Chase Gozdieski and Erek Graham, both signed from PSC this week also with the Hailstorm. 

Dane’s father, Mark was extremely impressed with the combine and also the service he received from VIP Director, Lee Holmes “Lee's mentoring of Dane is honest and top notch. We thank Lee so much for the time and effort he has given to Dane and our family. I hope many more young hard working dedicated athletes and young men find their way to PSC and the individual evaluation the VIP program offers."

PSC Director Tom Taylor commented: “We are extremely pleased with the deal given to Dane. The Hailstorm will provide him the opportunity to play in a competitive U21 League and the chance to train weekly alongside experienced professionals. As a young player it's important to play out of your comfort zone and consistently test yourself with and against quality players. There is no doubt that Dane will learn a lot from Eamon, Colin and Kevin and develop as a player in this competitive environment."
