Dan tells a powerful story about what it means to stand up for what is right.
After 20 years, our own Dan Capron has retired as an on-field official for the Big Ten Conference. His final game was the Big Ten Championship on December 7, 2019, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
What a run! Dan has officiated more than 200 Big Ten games and has had many memorable moments, including the Sugar Bowl, the Peach Bowl, the Orange Bowl, two Big Ten championships, and the 2018 National Championship.
