Dan comes to the Brainerd Lakes Area this summer after a successful season at the University of Minnesota. He hit .304 in 33 games, 17 of which he started. This was after redshirting the 2010 season. At CMR Russell High School in Great Falls, not only was he a standout athlete, but Dan also excelled in the classroom, as he was a three-time Academic All-State Honoree. His parents are Paula and Terry Olinger, and he is currently undecided on his major at Minnesota. During his free time, Dan likes to fish and hunt.
