Pronunciation: Day-none
Position(s): WR

Danan Hughes attended Bayonne High School and lived in Bayonne, New Jersey. He was named Hudson Dispatch 1987-88 High School Athlete of the Year. He was recruited by Iowa, Nebraska and Penn State, and chose Iowa due to the connection with other players from Bayonne. After redshirting during the 1988 season, Hughes set a team record for freshman receiving yards with 471 yards on 28 receptions in 1989. Hughes ranks 3rd on Iowa’s all-time career receiving list, behind only Derrell Johnson-Koulianos with 168 receptions for 2544 career yards and Tim Dwight, with 146 receptions for 2,216 career yards. His 21 career touchdown receptions are tied with Dwight for second most in team history behind Marvin McNutt.

During the final regular season game of 1991, Hughes was on the receiving end of one of Matt Rodger’s 3 touchdown passes against Minnesota in the classic “Snow Game”. He performed his famous "snow angel" celebration, which gave coach Hayden Fry his 100th victory at Iowa. He was named second team All-Big Ten in 1992, and honorable mention in 1990 and 1991.

Danan Hughes also played outfield for the Hawkeye baseball team and was one of the best two-sport athletes in Iowa history. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 1992 amateur baseball draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. Only two Hawkeye baseball players have been drafted higher since 1992. The Kansas City Chiefs selected him in the 7th round of the 1993 NFL Draft, and Hughes played for the Chiefs from 1993 to 1998 as a wide receiver and special teams player.

Born 12/11/1970 and is 53 years old.

All Conference: 1st Team (1991), 2nd Team (1992), Honorable mention (1990) Drafted Round 7 by Kansas City Chiefs in 1993
