CEDAR HILL, Tex - Facing constant double and even triple-teams at times, Dallas Bishop Dunne 2017 defensive tackle Damion Daniels anchored a 56-14 win over Cedar Hill Trinity Christian on Friday night.
"I know every time I come into the game, I'm going to get everyone's 100 percent," said Daniels. "I got to step my game up a notch to overcome it."
Daniels has helped lead Bishop Dunne out to a 2-0 start on the season. He's also found time to hit the recruiting trail, taking in Lincoln for Nebraska's opening matchup with Fresno State.
A week later, the senior is still all smiles.
"That visit couldn't have gone much better," said Daniels. "Nebraska is a leader.
"When I make a commitment I want to be sure on my commitment. All the schools I'm planning on visiting, they are good schools, with good ball clubs. I know they are going to help me get my education and help me get to the next level. So I want to make sure I take it step-by-step and take my five officials."
Daniels has plans to visit Iowa, USC, Colorado and LSU down the road. At this point, a January commitment is in the cards. And what about a return trip to Lincoln? It is not out of the question. When asked by his a couple of his teammates on the sidelines after the game, Daniels said he hopes to make it back up.
"The way they showed me love, it was crazy," said Daniels. "Running on the field, that meant a lot. Running on the field in front of 90,000 people, that is a lot."
The Texas native is looking for a school that can help him get early playing time and a family atmosphere.
