COACH COLE ON DANIEL: “Good programs have anchors that strongly set the tone for how the group goes about its business. Dan is one of those guys for us. He runs a lot, he’s very committed to the process at practice and away from practice, he understands that his actions speak louder than words, and he doesn’t mind being an example. As we continue to grow as a program, it will be because of guys like Dan Shellhouse.”
