Class of 1994
Dan Takah was a two-sport standout for the Bison in the early 90’s. On the gridiron, he turned in one of the greatest seasons ever by a Bethany quarterback in 1993. He set school-records in passing attempts (361) and most offensive attempts (479), while throwing for 1,982 yards and 12 touchdowns. After leading Bethany to a 4-4-1 record, their first non-losing season in 11 years, Takah was named PAC MVP.
His outstanding senior season continued on the diamond in the spring, as he earned First Team All-PAC as a shortstop after batting .360 (11thin the PAC) and guiding the Bison to a 25-6 record. Following his remarkable year, Takah earned Bethany’s Senior Scholar-Athlete Award, as well as the William Hanna Award as the Outstanding Senior Male Athlete.
When he wasn’t excelling on the fields, Takah was serving as the Chief Justice of the Student Court as a senior.
After graduating from Bethany with a degree in economics, Takah stayed at Bethany to serve as an assistant football and softball coach for two seasons. Currently, he is a Vice President for Bank of America Corporation, a position he’s held since 2002.
Takah, who graduated from Avella High School near Washington, Pa., currently resides in Matthews, N.C., with his wife, Merry Ann, and their two children, Jacob and Camryn.
