He attended two elementary schools, Roses School and South Marysburgh School, before heading off to Prince Edward Collegiate. He enjoyed all sports as a youth, and excelled as a softball pitcher. He led the Picton Legion Bantam team to the Ontario finals in 1965.

In his final year of high school, football was re-introduced to The County. Dan played on that team and was scouted by Tom Mooney from McGill-but at a basketball game! He attended McGill, and made the varsity football team, as a freshman. He was drafted by the Calgary Stampeders, but chose to stay in Ontario at Western. He played there in 1971 and 1972, and was an all star both years. He also won the award as the most valuable lineman. In 1973, while completing his third and fourth years of dentistry, Dan joined the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League.

That same year, perennial all star Angelo Mosca retired from football, and Dan took his place as a defensive lineman. Following his football career, he coached high school football in Dunnville. In 2010, his 1971 Mustang football team was inducted into the University of Western Ontario Hall of Fame.
