Eli Daniel to Play in North-South All Star Football Game
The Indiana Football Coaches Association has announced the rosters for this year’s annual Indiana High School Football North-South All-Star Football Game; and Senior Pirate Football standout Eli Daniel has been named to the South roster. Eli becomes only the fifth Pirate Football player to be selected and play in the annual game; joining the likes of his brother Aaron Daniel (2013 All-Star MVP), BJ Steele (1999), Richard Lanham (1990), and Kem Martin (1976). Eli (in the position of Safety) is the ONLY player from the Clark-Floyd area (in all classes of Indiana Football) to be selected; and will join Madison’s Hunter Sergo (punter), in representing the entire South-Central region of Indiana. Additionally, Charlestown Pirate Football Assistant Coach Aaron Humphrey has been selected to serve as a South All-Star team Assistant Coach.
Eli finished his Senior season this past year with 62 solo tackles and 498 receiving yards on 27 catches; however he will be forever remembered for his 55 yard break-away run, after a 25 yard catch in the snow and freezing rain, breaking three tackles, to make it possible to upset #2 Brownstown in the Sectional Semi-Final. VIDEO HERE. Eli’s Offensive career final statistics include: 46 carries for 297 yds. and four TDs; 39 catches for 729 yds. and four TDs.; 510 kickoff return yards including one 98 yard school record touchdown. Defensively Eli finished his Charlestown career with 108 solo tackles, 47 Assisted Tackles including 10 for a loss, totaling 155 career tackles; 1 fumble recovery, 3 fumbles forced, 3 interceptions and 6 pass breakups. Eli also punted the ball 88 times while playing for the Pirates, averaging 32.4 yards per punt.
