Q and A with Hornet of the Week Daniel Rowe

Q and A with Hornet of the Week Daniel Rowe

The Lynchburg College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our Hornet of the Week. The 17th student-athlete selected this year is men's basketball sophomore Daniel Rowe.

Rowe has scored in double-figures in his past three games while shooting a torrid 48.7% from the field. He proved to be a key spark in the Hornet men going 2-0 at the Luck Stone Holiday Classic this past week hosted at Hampden-Sydney College.

You led the team with 10 points in the second half against Baruch College to help bring home a 77-64 win. Additionally, you are shooting over 60% from the field on the season. What has been working well for you early on to influence those numbers?

One of the biggest reasons for my success has been the work I've done both in and out of practice and all the work I put in over the summer.

What is your favorite thing about Lynchburg men's basketball?

My favorite things about Lynchburg basketball are the alumni connections and the family atmosphere that Coach Scott has worked hard to create. Not only are we teammates on the court, but brothers off the court as well.

What do you like most about Lynchburg College?

The things I like most about Lynchburg College are the opportunities it allows for you to develop both inside and outside the classroom. There are intriguing classes to take as well and tons of organizations to get involved with on campus where you can learn new things and meet new people.

In your mind, what does it mean to be a student-athlete and how has Lynchburg helped you out?

To me, being a student-athlete is a huge responsibility and an even bigger commitment.  We are called to represent our school and student body every time we step on the court or playing field.  As a result, we're always being observed by everyone whether we know it or not.  Lynchburg has helped me through assigning an academic advisor for our team who helps keep us on track and encourages us along the way. Our advisor, Mrs. Eccles, really stresses the importance of managing our time so that we can balance our academic needs with our busy basketball schedule.
