The family began attending K-State in 1949 and have a total of 42 family members that enrolled at the university.

Nancy says the K-State way is what keeps them coming back.

She said, "It's such a great place, the value system, the farm values, the rural values, the Kansas values, and hard work and integrity. When the says it's the Bill Snyder Family Stadium, for us it's the family stadium. It really feels like a family at K-State.

The Daniels' will be honored at half time of Saturday's home game, as the Wildcats take on Louisiana Lafayette.
