First and most important, I send my thoughts and prayers to the family. I had the honor to work with Danny the past 4 years. Danny and I would share our experiences, knowledge of our job and ideas. Danny was never short on words and was a huge sports authority. Danny was always current with football and baseball at all levels. I know his joy was his son and grandsons. He spoke of them often. Danny most always had something on that had Ole Miss and he didnt think much of LSU. He made that quite clear a few times. I will miss Danny and certainly was blessed to have known him.
