The Durham Lords indoor soccer team is welcoming back Daniel Peterson during their first tournament of the semester, against Fleming College, on January 14. Peterson, a public relations student, played for the Lords for two years before taking last year off to work. But work didn’t stop him from still contributing in the team’s effort.
“It’s been a while. It’s tough, but I enjoy it. I’ve been involved with the team and I’ve been training and coaching and now I’m taking my player position back,” said Peterson.
