It has been said you cannot say Yarnell without saying Hein (or is that Hanes?). Coming out of Texas and going to every tournament in sight, Dan along with longtime partner Steve Hanes drove everywhere to compete and jam.
This vast experience has paid off as Dan is consistently at the top of the jam heap with his gymnastic capabilities and his extensive technical game. His spinning kicks are unique in Pro Disc Freestyle", while his disc manipulations are otherworldly. He is that rare jammer who is both physical and technical at the highest level.
As a dental technician, Dan's work experience has helped the jam community. His work with dental acrylics has seen him develop a cottage industry by providing state of the art acrylic "YarNails," used by a majority of jammers worldwide.
Dan is a rare former #1 ranked player, having toppled the Arthur and Dave juggernaut for a time a couple of years ago.
Dan met his fiancee at a Frisbee tournament where her brother was the tournament director. Now she is his "freestyle" partner. Who can define freestyle partnership?
