SeattlleSoccerClub1974

Walt Daggatt, one of the fathers of the NASL Sounders, passed today.

via ECS forums and a fantastic article at the Times about one of the Northwest's, if not America's, greatest soccer startup men. He understood what it means to have a fan's sport in the city of Seattle, and worked hard to bring the Sounders here in 1973.

Daggatt is survived by his wife Janet of Seattle and Rancho Mirage, sons Andy and Russell of Seattle and Scott of Issaquah.

And the ENTIRE Sounders family.
