2006 Season

All-American, 2nd team All-Big Sky K, HM All-Big Sky P in '06. Took over P duties for injury reason.

2005 Season

He was a second team All-Big Sky Conference selection for the second year in a row. He made 14-of-21 field goal attempts and 34-of-36 PATs. He was ranked 19th in the nation with 1.17 field goals a game. He had converted 67 straight PAT's dating back to the 2004 season but missed his fifth attempt against Fort Lewis in the season opener last year. He was forced into punting duties when Tyson Johnson was injured late in the season and had nine punts for a 41.4-yard average against Cal Poly in UM's Division I-AA playoff game last season. He was a perfect three-of-three in field goal attempts in Griz wins at Idaho State, against Portland State and at Northern Arizona. He booted a career-long 50-yard field goal at Northern Arizona on Nov. 5, which ties him for the seventh longest in Griz history.

2004 Season

As a true freshman, he connected on 18-of-29 of his field goal attempts, was a perfect 63-of-63 in PATs, and scored 123 points. His 123 points were the second most in school history (the 11th most in league history), trailing only Chris Snyder, who scored 124 points at UM in 2003. He was a second team All-Big Sky pick and was tabbed the Big Sky's Special Teams Player of the Week three times. He was ranked 16th in the nation in I-AA field goals (1.20 a game).

High School

At Helena High School he was a two-time first team all-state and an all-league kicker and punter. He played in Montana's Annual East-West Shrine Game and the Montana-North Dakota All-Star Game. His senior season he connected on 26-of-29 PATs and booted five field goals, including a long of 53 yards. He was also a first team all-conference pick and second team all-state selection at wide receiver, where he set school records with 13 touchdown catches for 931 yards. In his prep career, 97 percent of his kickoffs were touchbacks, and his 10 career field goals tied the school record. Dan's prep coach was former (1985-88) Griz quarterback Tony Arntson. He lettered three times in football, twice in track, and once in basketball.
