Co-Founder | FIFA Agent | Attorney: Daniel Woolard, commonly known in our industry as “Wooley” had an illustrious career as a professional soccer player in Major League Soccer.
In 2007 Woolard was drafted in the fourth round, 47th overall, by the Chicago Fire from Midwestern State University, while making a name for himself as one of the few athletes ever drafted from a DII school. After 3 successful seasons at the Fire, he made the move to DC United.
During his time at DCU, Wooley would become one of the most dominating defenders in the league, earning a leadership role within the team and the backline. Wooley was a key player of DCU’s Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Championship run, assisting the team in lifting the its 3rd Open Cup trophy.
Upon retiring from professional soccer, Woolard enrolled in law school at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctor in May of 2019 and obtaining the State Texas Bar attorney license in October of 2019.
Thanks to his deep network in the soccer industry, knowledge of the game as a player and his background as an attorney, Wooley has become a great source of knowledge for Felkrem’s clients. Having experienced the ins-and-outs of professional soccer as an athlete, combined with his law degree, he is able to provide a unique perspective to all athletes.
Due to various head-related injuries, Daniel Woolard has become an advocate for brain health in our sport and how it should be regulated and overseen by teams and leagues alike.
