Coach Wadley on Daniel... “Daniel has had injury plagued career. He has played as low as five for us until his junior year. He has really blossomed. He had a great year for us last year culminating with his All-American honor. He is also playing No. 1 doubles for us again this year. I think we have him a real quality partner. I think he has a chance to challenge for an NCAA doubles championship. Daniel has done a great job for us and he is a great guy to have on the team. We are looking forward to him closing out his career with another great year.”
