INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics has released the 2016 Daktronics-NAIA men's tennis Scholar-Athletes. 90 men from across the nation were selected for this honor.

Head coach Steve Mackell on Danny's selection: " I am extremely proud of Danny's accomplishment. He has worked really hard in the classroom to keep his GPA high while at the same time being able to excel on the court."

The Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete programs recognize excellence in the classroom by NAIA-member student-athletes who are juniors or above in academic standing with a 3.5 cumulative GPA.
