Moving into his third year with the Lions, Rob Valentino proved to once again be a leader and focal point of the Orlando City defense. In the previous season, the defender played 2,125 minutes and recorded 12 points.
Valentino missed a few weeks due to injury but still managed to start 15 games for the Lions during the 2012 season, recording two goals and 1,187 minutes.
Named the 2011 USL PRO Defender of the Year, Valentino has established himself at the heart of the Lions defense.
In the Community: Orlando City’s Rob Valentino became involved with the To Be Kind campaign during the 2013 campaign in an effort to publicly promote anti-bullying at any age. Started by the Leadership class at Lake Brantley High School, the group actively promotes efforts to effectively reduce bullying by proactively encouraging others to simply act kind.
“No kid should have to worry about being picked on at school or anywhere else,” said Valentino. “I want to encourage people to be kind to one another.”
