Kol Hakavod to Dani Wohl

When I helped coach my little brother Jake’s little league baseball team many many years ago, I knew that Dani Wohl was a good athlete, but I just didn’t realize how good!

He’s much older now and has done what very few Jewish kids from West Bloomfield, Michigan get to do in college — start as the point guard for the University of Michigan varsity basketball team.

The Michigan Daily published a great article about Dani today that even quotes his dad Milt (my CPA!). With Rabbi Danny Nevins in the crowd during one of his final games in a U-M jersey, Dani had 6 steals almost tying the all-time Michigan record (the most for a Wolverine in the past 10 years).

Now Dani will play for the U.S. team in the Maccabiah Games in Israel. I’m very proud of Dani.
