San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Mike Gatto honors Calabasas High grad Daniel Steres after Galaxy debut


There haven’t been too many well-known professional soccer players from the San Fernando Valley, but that changed last weekend when rookie Galaxy defender Daniel Steres scored the equalizing goal against D.C. United that sparked LA to a come-from-behind 4-1 win in their MLS opener in Carson.

That stunning display meant veteran valley Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles), the longest-serving member of the Assembly, was quick to present Steres with a certificate of recognition in honor of his achievement.

“Daniel is a proud San Fernando Valley native and his success is a phenomenal example to aspiring athletes in Southern California,” said Gatto. “I look forward to seeing his continued success both on and off the field.”
