Danielle Slack is D1 Knoxville's September Character Athlete of the Month. Danielle is 14 years old and will be a guard on Sequoya High School's basketball team. She trains ahead of her age with Coach Andrea Ott in D1's Prep Group (Ages 15-18). Danielle's ability to motivate and improve herself, without complaining is what makes her a great example of a SELF-DISCIPLINED person. Along with D1 training, Danielle trains at her school two times a day, four days a week as she seeks to make the varsity basketball team as a freshman. This kind of determination requires an amount of SELF-DISCIPLINE that very few possess.
