Daniel Harvey (born November 8, 1982 in Waxhaw, North Carolina) is a former American soccer player who last played for Charlotte Eagles in the USL Second Division.


Youth and college[edit]

Harvey attended Parkwood High School in Monroe, North Carolina, and went on to play four years of college soccer at Bryan College,[1] where he was named to the 2004 NSCAA/adidas Men’s NCCAA All-America Team.[2]


Harvey turned professional in 2005 when he signed for USL Second Division side Charlotte Eagles. He made his professional debut - and scored his first professional goal - on April 15, 2005, in Charlotte's season-opening game against the Northern Virginia Royals.[3]

Harvey was a bit part player for the next two seasons, before eventually establishing himself as one of Charlotte's first-choice starters in the 2007 season. He made 30 appearances, and scored 5 goals, for the Eagles over the course of four seasons, before leaving the club at the end of 2008.

After a year out of the professional game Harvey returned to the Eagles for the second half of the 2010 USL Second Division campaign.

In May 2011, Harvey retired as a player to take a position as soccer coach and teacher at Lexington Christian Academy in Lexington, Kentucky.
