Daniel Jahnsen, known to his teammates as Veggie Dan, embodies the right way to play ultimate. You can always find him with a smile on his face and his feet off the ground. In just three years of playing ultimate, Veg has become one of the best overall players in the very competitive Atlantic Coast Developmental Region.
He seems to come down with every disc that hangs in the air a little too long and is no stranger to run-through or layout D’s.
More importantly, Veg cares more about making sure everyone on the field is having a good time – even his opponents. Often complimented for being the nicest player on the field, Veg is also the hardest-working guy on the team and one of the best all-around people we know. As a friend, a teammate, and a leader, he brings out the best in everyone he plays with.
His lead-by-example approach to captaining has made Delaware B’s entire team better this year. These are just some of the many reasons why Veggie Dan deserves to be in the discussion for this year’s Callahan Award. He also owns AirPods.View Nominee Video
