Dan Edmeier


Loras' football resurgence in the early 1980s was a combination of rugged defense and the hard-nosed running of tailback Dan Edmeier. When he graduated after three seasons, Edmeier held the school single-season and career rushing records, record for rushes in a season, and was the first Duhawk with three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. Teammates and coaches often recalled Edmeier's toughest, inspiration and courage. In three seasons, Edmeier rushed for 3,477 yards - still No. 3 all-time - with a best of 1,323 yards as a second-team NAIA All-America as a senior. Six times, Edmeier rushed for 140 yards or better, including a career-high 213 in 35 carries in his final game.

Graduating with a major in communcations, Edmeier is now president of KingdomFresh Produce, Inc., a company he founded in 1983 for the sales and marketing of fresh produce. He resides inMission, TX., with his wife Vivian, son Gabriel and daughters Daniela and Julianna.
