Chicago became a second home for Danielle Colaprico. The Central New Jersey native has, to date, played her entire professional career with the Chicago Red Stars since being drafted there in 2015, aside from offseason loans to Australia.
The past year, however, was one of significant change in the National Women’s Soccer League, including a first collective bargaining agreement that brought free agency to the league for the first time this offseason. The newfound player autonomy was initially only for players with at least six years of experience in the league and expiring contracts.
Colaprico was in that group, a realization that brought excitement before the stress of decision-making set in.
“I’m someone that likes to stick to her ways, and once I know something I stick to it,” she told The Equalizer. “So, for the longest time I did feel like my whole career was going to be in Chicago.”
