Dan Cundy is an international student from Cambridge, England and is a junior this year. Ever since Cundy was three years old, he has been kicking a soccer ball and it is one of the reasons he came to UW-Superior.

He was a defenseman for soccer team for two years before deciding to step away this past fall. In 2020, in his first semester after transferring from Lake Superior College, Cundy played in the shortened season.

He appeared in 10 matches, started in one, and logged 103 total minutes that year. COVID-19 struck that year, “It was really unprecedented, unusual, the season was condensed,” said Cundy. He was a freshman at the time, and didn’t expect to play a whole lot, but felt he fit in quite nicely, getting a start and getting some playing time.

“It was more about adapting to the American game, it is so different here,” said Cundy. UWS finished number 3 in the nation for division III teams that year. “It was nice to go back in the summer and brag about that to my friends in England,” added Cundy.

In 2021, Cundy started the first three matches of the season, logging a total of 160 minutes for the Yellowjackets. He found out, to play sports at the college level, you must be all in. “You must stay dedicated; it is a whole life commitment. You have to stay focused, and it takes quite a bit of practice and training,” said Cundy.

He played three seasons at UWS and felt like it was time to move on to other things. Cundy has a goal to become a sports journalist someday. He will be graduating in May 2024 and is majoring in sports journalism.

His main focus for writing is soccer but would be happy to get into any sport. Cundy is planning to join the Promethean next semester to further help pursue his goal of getting into sports journalism.
