Dave “TNT” Daniecki has always loved being the enforcer. The ’97 Penn State grad once said, “Early on in the game I look for a couple big hits that put fear into the other team.” He concluded, “It lets them know that if they expect to catch the ball they’re going to get hit.” Daniecki, who majored in Civil Engineering, took his role as enforcer more than a step further by becoming an MMA fighter.

The PSU captain and Loyola Blakefield grad, Daniecki, used to cover the opposing team’s top attackman such as Princeton’s Jesse Hubbard. Daniecki weighs in at 190lbs and stands 6ft tall. He currently has a 3-1 record. He has won by a TKO, submission and a decision. His next fight takes place at the First Mariner Center in Baltimore, Md. on Oct. 8. Below is a tailer for the event, Shogun V.

He’s one heck of an athlete, once an All American and a Baltimore Bayhawk, now a MMA contender. We’re looking forward to hearing more about Dave Daniecki and will continue to keep you posted. If you know any other lacrosse players that currently compete in MMA please email us at [email protected]
