William Verner Daniel '46

Awarded the Rinehart Medal his senior year for athletic worth, Bill Daniel was one of the School’s finest all-around athletes. “Gus” was the captain of the basketball and baseball teams his senior year. An All-State Prep basketball player, he was skilled in both offense and defense, sinking shots from anywhere on the floor and cleverly guarding the opposing centers. For his speed and agility on the football field, he was selected All-Prep and All-Metro his senior year. Mr. Daniel won the Baseball Medal his junior year, and many game highlights can be attributed to this excellent sportsman. Among the most memorable is the home base steal that clinched the State Prep Baseball Championship against Woodberry his senior year.
