Author, 'Single-Digit Soccer'
Beau Dure is a freelance sports writer based in Vienna, Va. He's the author of Long-Range Goals: The Success Story of Major League Soccer, and Enduring Spirit: Restoring Professional Women's Soccer to Washington. He's now working on a book on youth soccer called Single-Digit Soccer.
He spent 10 years at USA TODAY, where he covered soccer, Olympic sports and mixed martial arts. He graduated from Duke the year the men's basketball team won its first national title and got his masters in liberal studies from Duke the year before the team won its third.
