Senior Quarterback Dan Selway Leaves His Mark On Bulldog Football

More news about: Redlands

University of Redlands quarterback Dan Selway (Villa Park, CA) completed his college football career with another outstanding season by establishing numerous career records for the Bulldogs. He was recently honored at the annual end-of-season team banquet with the Frank Serrao Coaches' Award for exemplary "Mental Toughness" and "Extreme Desire."

"For a quarterback, the best measures of success are winning, passing, and leadership. Danny has excelled at all three," said Head Coach Mike Maynard, who completed his 23rd year at the helm.

Winning: As the Bulldogs' starting quarterback, Selway led the team to a 27-5 record. In home games, Selway was 15-1 as the team's top play-caller.

Maynard also notes that with Selway at quarterback, the Bulldogs won all eight games against out-of-state opponents – on the road in Washington and Texas, and at home against teams from Washington, Iowa and Kansas.

Further, Selway was undefeated in four Homecoming contests. Two remarkable highlights include last year's six touchdown passes versus Whittier College during the 100th year of Bulldog football and this season's dismantling of Occidental College with Selway throwing three touchdowns.

In addition, special victories during Selway's career include the 2007 game at Whitworth University (WA) when the Bulldogs handed the Pirates their first home loss by a California team in their stadium's history. This game was highlighted by his 79-yard touchdown throw in the fourth quarter.

Perhaps Maynard and the Bulldog community remember his best performance during this year's final game. With four minutes left and Redlands down 14-17, Selway led the Bulldogs on a 70-yard drive with passes for 42 yards, including a fourth-and-17 play over the middle. He also recorded three rushes for 23 yards, highlighted by a one-yard blast into the end zone for the winning touchdown. All of this was made possible by the receiving and blocking of his longtime friends and teammates, who joined the coaches and fans in a celebration of Selway's final victory.

Passing: In his career, Selway threw for nearly 7,500 yards with 77 touchdown passes on 614 completions in 1,001 attempts. According to Maynard, these are Bulldog football career records and perhaps land at the top of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) all-time lists.

During the 2010 season, Selway led the SCIAC in passing yards, total offense, touchdown passes and season winning percentage. After receiving three All-Conference nods in his career, including the 2007 SCIAC Offensive Player of the Year, he landed on two All-America lists and was invited to the postseason all-star game for Division III football. Regretfully, Selway underwent a complicated wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament in his throwing arm after the conclusion of the season. He had played courageously through this injury during the last game and a half.

Leadership: Selway is the only four-year team captain in Bulldog football history. A leader off the field, he participated in many of the team's service projects for which the football program has become well-known. These include Benevolent Bulldog fundraising projects, such as St. Jude Children's Hospital and the Ronald McDonald Camp Good Times, as well as the National Forest tree-planting and Habitat for Humanity work. Selway was instrumental as a coordinator of the Assistencia Villa Convalescent Home Valentine's Day dance. He was always supportive of football program recruiting as he hosted prospects and volunteered his time to respond to parent questions regarding his experience.

Selway's career spanned six seasons (2005-2010) due to injuries that allowed for just two games each during the 2006 and 2008 campaigns. Medical hardships, granted by the SCIAC and the NCAA, provided for additional season opportunities, which he embraced with commitment and dedication. He graduated with a degree in Business Administration with his class in 2009 and returned for graduate school in his final season.

"This year we emphasized 'Mental Toughness,' 'Extreme Desire,' and 'Making History.' And Danny epitomizes these qualities," said Maynard. "Dan overcame serious and numerous injuries and surgeries – literally from head to toe. Undaunted, Danny fought back with a driving passion to come back and lead our team to an eight-win, one-loss season, our best in many years."
