Participating in multiple team sports and camps throughout his youth, Daniel fell in love with baseball and attended Colorado Mesa University to play and study sports management. After suffering an injury sophomore year, Daniel transitioned his focus to rehabilitation and pursuing a professional career, obtaining his Certified Youth Sports Administrator and Certified Parks and Recreation Professional certifications. Cleats hung up, he pivoted to community service, acting as the Youth Sports Director aboard MCAS Miramar where he’s had the honor to help serve over 15,000+ military families by providing a world class youth sports program for their children to grow and develop in. Daniel loves family time, fishing, sports, and cooking.

Fun Fact: Shocking to most people, Daniel has never watched a single Star Wars movie.

Why I Rally: I believe we all share one common goal and that is to create a healthy, fun-filled environment for our youth to prosper in. It is our job to pave the way and provide the next generation with the tools needed to succeed in life. I love Rally because our purpose is just that; rally our children together and encourage sportsmanship, respect and promote great leaders.
