During Daniel’s time off he enjoyed being in the gym and hanging out with his friends, family and girlfriend.
Daniel and Kerri attended and volunteered at Life Church in Oklahoma City. Daniel is very well respected among his friends and family.

He is an active fitness enthusiast and provides fitness and weightlifting guidance to friends and newcomers. Daniel has established ties to the community through his weightlifting network and friends. Daniel has been a pillar citizen in the community.


My father had a long career with the Air Force Security Police and now currently a Lieutenant at the Enid Police Department. I have always looked up to my Father and admired his role as a Police Officer.

While playing football in college I pursued my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. I knew that I needed a backup plan just in case the NFL did not work out and my next passion was to be a Police Officer. I think being an Oklahoma City Police Officer would be a challenge with numerous opportunities to specialize as it is a very large department.

I have always thought public service was very important to giving back to the community and protecting it. I have always lived ethically and tried to be a positive role model to others. I have the highest regards and respect for police officers and aspire to fill that role and make a lifelong career in this field.
