The Writers

Colorado Native Juan Fernandez has been a lifelong fan of the beautiful game. From childhood memories of playing to current day capo duties, soccer is spread out all throughout Juan’s life. From playing recreationally, to coaching, to writing, to reading, to watching, and to supporting soccer, the sport is heavily ingrained in Juan’s personal life. When he’s away from the pitch, Juan can be seen studying and perfecting his craft as a musician under the stage name “Juanners”.
