Daniel Teo Nesheim is another in a long line of solid Husky players who have been recruited from the state of Hawaii. Since the day he set foot on campus all the coaches knew he would be special because he has a motor that doesn't quit. Coaches know you can't teach that, players either have it, or they don't.
Daniel enters his junior season with All Pac Ten honors firmly set in his sights. The Huskies need a big year out of their only retunring starter on the defensive line, and it looks like he is prepared to really open up some eyes this season. Some of those eyes belong to NFL scouts, and there is a good chance that Teo Nesheim may make enough noise to enter the draft next spring if he so desires.
Daniel is one of the designated leaders of the defense this season. He is one of those kids the coaches don't have to worry about because he gets his work done, and inspires those around him to do the same.
They say one picture is worth a thousand words. Check out this video of Daniel laying the hammer during the Cal game last year.

I expect very big things out of this kid this year because every single year he has been here he has shown considerable improvement. The Huskies are going to need that type of talent and leadership this year on the defensive line because they will be breaking in three new starters. Expect Daniel Teo Nesheim to be a major difference maker for the Huskies in 2008.
