Watts Dantzler’s late father still a major influence his recruitment

Earlier this week I wrote about elite offensive line prospect Watts Dantzler of Dalton and how much he’s enjoying the recruiting process. What I didn’t get into very much in that report was Dantzler’s relationship with his father, Danny Dantzler, who fought a valiant three-year battle with ALS (better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) before succumbing in February of 2009. While Danny Dantzler is gone, he still has a strong influence on his son’s recruitment. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
