Dan started rowing as a high school senior for the Greater Dayton Rowing Association in Ohio. He continued rowing on the University of Dayton varsity men’s team. While at UD, he began coaching the middle school program at GDRA during the summer and then moved up to coaching the competitive juniors team. He moved to Pittsburgh in October 2012 to pursue his career as a mechanical engineer and began coaching for USC Crew in February 2014.
Mike joined Pine-Richland High School’s rowing team at the end of his Junior year. After a very productive summer at North Allegheny’s rowing camp, winning the Men’s Novice 1x event at the 2014 Independence Day Regatta, he decided to join Three Rivers Junior Rowing program. He raced primarily in the Men’s 1V8+ and the Men’s 2V4+ until graduation in 2015 and began rowing at Steel City as an open rower that summer. He became a part of USC Crew’s coaching staff in September of 2016 and is excited for the seasons to come.
