Daniels Tears Up Watching Son Play

Phillip Daniels spent 15 seasons in the NFL as a defensive lineman, the last seven of which were with the Washington Redskins.

He’s now moved on from his playing career and is in his first season as the Redskins’ director of player development (I’d like to bet that he’s the buffest director of player development in the entire NFL).

Though Daniels’ playing career is over, his son, DaVaris, is trying to pick up where his father left off.

DaVaris Daniels is a sophomore wide receiver at Notre Dame, which is playing its season opener today against Navy in Ireland. DaVaris’s father, meanwhile, hasn’t been holding back his emotions throughout the morning with tweets like this:


That was before the game even started. What about when DaVaris caught a pass for 35 yards?


Spoken like a true father and coach.

Congratulations to both Phillip and DaVaris Daniels on your continued successes. Who knows — at this pace, DaVaris could be the next member of his family playing on Sundays?

Phillip Daniels and his wife, Leslie, have four children in all — sons DaVaris and DaKendrick and daughters Damara and DaKiya.
