As with any preseason, clubs around the league like to drum up excitement on the new season. FC Dallas is having their Marketing Days this week before the club heads to Austin this weekend to play apart in the ATX Pro Challenge. The club did several Twitter Q&As today with players and here are a few highlights from the day.
The Homegrown forward Coy Craft was up first and he struggled with a question from our own Taylor Hester.
Its okay Coy, things get lost in translation on Twitter all the time.
Craft did let us know which players he looks up to and what style of play he likes to go with on the field.
Newly acquired midfielder Kyle Bekker was next and he gave an insight to what he hopes to bring to the table this season for the club and how he hopes the season will go.
.@SaskTFCFan I love passing and going forward so anything that allows me to do that is great. Being creative.— FC Dallas (@FCDallas) February 11, 2015
.@NaqOutPunch I'd love to be a big part in this team, contribute as much as I can. Get tons of wins and get this championship. Trophies!— FC Dallas (@FCDallas) February 11, 2015
Fabian Castillo and his new five year contract were next to the Twitter machine. He talked about his family, his love for the Beer Guardians and what his nickname is in Colombia.
.@ChristianOsegu1 In Colombia, I'm called casique.— FC Dallas (@FCDallas) February 11, 2015
It was also good to see that Castillo still has some big national team goals in his sights.
.@Levydsrgop He's the best player for Colombia at the moment. And yes, I see myself with the national team. I'm waiting for my opportunity.— FC Dallas (@FCDallas) February 11, 2015
Last to the computer was our favorite Rookie of the Year from 2014, Tesho Akindele who once again provided that he wants his first name on the back of his jersey in 2015.
