Bob Day, local high school boy who lived within punting distance of the Bowl, offered him as a mascot and was quickly accepted. He was a real showman if there ever was one. Loved to cavort in front of crowds and whenever the crowd roared he would immediately go into a sideline act. He made the trip to Princeton and even knew his way around the locker rooms.

"This Dan, granted, hasn't won some of the prizes that were awarded to his predecessors, but when it comes to knowing football, making friends and doing tricks - he's tops."

Died of old age in 1947.
