Paul VI freshman guard bursts onto national scene, with ‘Momma LaVar’ by his side

Dawn McDaniel didn't know this would be happening so soon. The mother of Paul VI freshman guard Knasir "Dug" McDaniel, a 5-foot-10 point guard for one of the top boys' basketball teams in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, had assumed her son would receive national recognition at some point, just not quite yet.

The past couple of months, McDaniel has watched as the number of her son's Instagram followers has skyrocketed to more than 11,800. Since December, multiple media groups, including SLAMBallislife and HoopDiamonds, have created highlight videos of Dug, generating hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
