A native of Odessa, Danny Lopez grew into the game at an early age, coming from a family of soccer. Lopez came of age when the competitive landscape of West Texas soccer was in it's developing stage, being a member of the Odessa Flames soccer club. Danny Lopez is the co-owner and Director of Coaching for Revolution Futbol Club. Lopez revitalized the club brand, that his father founded, in 2012 as a reaction to what he saw in the area as a much needed alternative to what was being offered by other competitive organizations. Lopez' coaching philosophy is built on the foundation of "respect for the game", developing the player IQ and skill set to develop the team and ultimately the community culture at large. He is greatly honored to have been given the opportunity and challenge to take his coaching skill set into this format of professional soccer with the US Arena Pro Soccer League and highlight the talent that West Texas has to offer. Lopez is married to Maria Costilla-Lopez, and the two have three children, Zaida, Noah, and Anai -all of whom have grown up around and continue playing soccer with a deep love of the game.
“Part of my motivation as a coach is to ensure that I prepare my players, as much as possible, for the obstacles that await them. My desire is to see my players continue to enjoy the game and take advantage of the opportunities that it will provide for them.” – Danny Lopez, FC West Texas Head Coach
