Here’s a new accolade for soccer star Danielle Slaton ’02: In November she was inducted into the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame, in a class of five that included 49ers great Dwight Clark.

Add that to the claims to fame Slaton already owns, including four-year starter for the Broncos, three-time first-team All American defender, five-year member of the U.S. National Team, silver medalist in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, and part of the team that took third in the 2003 World Cup. Oh yes—and she captained SCU to the 2001 NCAA championship and was named NCAA College Cup Defensive MVP.

In 2015, Slaton returned to SCU as the director of the Jerry Smith Coaching for Life Academy. She is also a sideline reporter for the San Jose Earthquakes and a women’s soccer analyst for NBC, Fox Sports, and the Pac-12 Networks.
