Daniel has played organized soccer since he was 4. He first attended practices at GR Crew Juniors (now Midwest United) in April 2014, and was there for a year.

He’s been given the opportunity to experience a variety of different practices and learn from different coaches and environments. He’s also played in some groups with much older players.

He joined the GRPS program for the first time in 2016 after being promoted to second grade.

He was selected for a new U7/U8 team at Midwest United after taking part in a tryout in December 2016.

He made his debut on April 15th 2017 in an 8-7 win in Hastings, playing mostly from a defensive role. Midwest United 09 Grey played in the GVSA U8 Boys Division 2 under Sean Downey. He was one of maybe four players who were playing up a year in this team.

He scored his first GVSA goal in a 9-7 win over Alliance at MSA Fieldhouse, opening the scoring very early on with an instinctive sniper finish in the goal area. His team moved top of the table with the win, their sixth win in six games. The next day they won the division title with a game to spare, with a 10-6 win against Michigan Fire.

He was then selected for the 2010 White team for the 2017 Fall season, staying with coach Sean Downey. He played half of most games in goal. He became the team’s free kick specialist, scoring three direct kicks during the season including one while playing in goal. He finished on five goals including a penalty.

For the 2018 Spring season he was promoted into the 2010 Royal team under JR Burnett, playing up a year in U9 Division 3. His new team finished division winners with seven wins and a draw. He scored two goals, both from open play in a 9-1 win over Fury. He played two halves in goal, conceding just one goal.

For the 2018 fall season he continued in 2010 Royal under new coach Domenic Barone. He scored two goals in a 6-2 away win against Lakeshore SC. With his team two goals down he opened their scoring with a left foot strike after bursting into the box; and then closed the scoring with a right-footed first time finish. He followed up with a goal and an assist in the next game against Michigan Fire Juniors, mopping up a loose ball in the goal area with a firm finish.

He switched schools from Harrison Park to C.A. Frost, still within the GRPS system, but declined to take part this year due to scheduling.

In the 2019 spring season his team 2010 Royal continued in Division 3, and won seven games, drew one, and won his third consecutive spring division title. His most common position this season was right wing, and it was from that position that he assisted on the team’s second goal in the final game in a 2-1 lightning-interrupted result. That score gave his team the last chance at a title, which was only lost on goal difference once the top team (who didn’t play his team) completed their schedule.

For the 2019 fall season the team was coached by Domenic’s brother Mark, and Daniel was again selected. This squad is on the pre-DA "Elite" track, and played up in U11 starting 9v9 and 30-minute halves for the first time. He also took part in GRPS middle school soccer for the first time, playing for City as he attenda CFE on their campus.

For the first time, he took part in an out-of-town tournament in Linden, Michigan. His team won all four games conceding just a single goal and came home with the MMSA Fall Classic trophy in the U11 Silver division.

City were playoff finalists, and Midwest won Division 2 by a single point, losing just one game on the final day of the season when they were already confirmed as champions. The team’s record was practically identical to that in the spring.

After failing to earn a spot on the 2020 Super Y team, his GVSA spring season was wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the aftermath of that cancellation, his Royal team continued into the 2020 fall season for their first taste of MSYSA Directors Academy action, in U11 Tier 3.
