#CAAHoops On Campus – In Focus: The Elon Way – Dr. D

Feb 18, 2015, 12:49 PM EDT

The #CAAHoops crew spent the weekend in North Carolina at Elon University, as part of the league’s continued on campus coverage. In this week’s feature, we sat down with a Phoenix legend in his own right, Dr. “Earl” Danieley, or Dr. D as he’s known by all Elon folks, and tried to get a grasp of the vital impact that he’s had on the town, community and athletic program at Elon University.

Danieley, a member of the class of 1946 and the school’s president emeritus, has forged a unique bond with the men’s and women’s basketball programs in the form of a pep “chant” in recognition for all he has done in his many years of service to Elon, both academically and athletically.
