While we still see him on television broadcasts for Seattle Sounders FC, Lamar Naegle repped the 253 hard during his days playing around the Puget Sound. Now he's turning to the front office to build his own club, Ballard FC, a semi-profession squad playing USL League Two. This new team starts playing this summer (2022) at Interbay Stadium.

Co-founded by Ballard High School alums, Chris Kaimmer and Sam Zisette, and Neagle, Ballard FC will be a community-centered team committed to creating opportunities in local soccer, amplifying the work of local non-profit organizations, and empowering small businesses. Jayda Evans from the Seattle Times wrote an awesome piece you should check out.
