Daniels chooses Lake Erie College for football

Clearview quarterback Davon Daniels will be continuing his football career and education at Lake Erie College next season.

Daniels, who passed for 610 yards and eight touchdowns for the Clippers in 2010, was recruited as an athlete and will most likely play on the defensive side of the ball for the Storm.

"I liked the fact that it’s a Division-II school, and I liked all the coaches and the whole environment over there," said Daniels, who will study sports management. Education is the most important thing — and they were able to help out financially."

Other schools Daniels looked into were Ashland, Notre Dame College and Heidelberg.

Daniels played defensive end and linebacker for Clearview and was the team’s starting quarterback for his senior season.

"Davon turned out to be a great leader for us," Clearview head coach Mike Collier said. "He was a quiet kid that became a vocal leader as a senior. He’s a flexible player and was always doing the right thing both on and off the field."

Daniels was a part of the Clearview team, seeing time mostly as a defensive end, that went 10-0 in 2008 and went to the playoffs. He was behind Zach Anderson, a three-year starter at quarterback, before becoming the starter in his last year with the team.
This season, the Clippers went 7-3.

"Being able to be the starting quarterback my senior year and take the field with the other 10 guys was great" said Daniels of his time at Clearview. "I’m looking forward to having fun, winning some games, getting an education and that college life experience."

The football program at Lake Erie, located in Painesville, began in 2008. The Storm went 7-4 this year.
