A star in high school, Danny made the NSW Combined Catholic Colleges team while attending De La Salle College in Ashfield, and also travelled to the USA, Canada, Philippines and Lebanon to play basketball. He began his representative career at the age of 14 with the Western Suburbs Magpies before heading to the Parramatta Wildcats and later had a stint with the Illawarra Hawks Youth League team. He also played for the St. George Saints and the Hornsby Spiders in the NSW State League competition before unfortunately being forced to retire from the sport due to a back injury.
His love for the game and all its possibilities has never diminished.
His creation of No1 Draft Pick showed a man who clearly has enormous love for the game and is determined to give back to those young boys and girls who are starting their journey in basketball, in much the same way he did so many years ago.
Danny is all about building the game and helping kids achieve their goals in the sport, no matter how large or small.
This coming season will be his second as a head coach after serving 2 years as Steve Carfino’s assistant coach. 2019 was a great year for Danny leading his under 14 team to the Nunawading Championship.
Danny also has 3 children, Joseph, James and Madeleine, all playing with the Bulls.
Danny also serves on the Inner West Bulls advisory board
From Danny . . . I get a buzz when I see the kids develop and improve over time!
