On Aug. 26, Fort Loramie senior forward Dana Rose took to social media to announce her commitment to Tiffin University.

On Nov. 20, she made it official, putting pen to paper as she signed her letter of intent in the high school gym.

The point guard turned post player for the Lady Redskins basketball team handled the transition smoothly last year, shooting 57% from the field, averaging a team high 10.7 points per game, four rebounds per game, two steals per game and a team high 28 blocked shots.  

Last year, she helped the team to an undefeated 26-0 record before the state semifinals were canceled due to COVID19. She was named the conference player of the year and named to the All Ohio 2nd team, District 9 Coach’s team and the Southwest District first team.

“I would say from her freshman year to her senior year, I’ve never had a player grow as much as she has,” said Lady Redskins head coach Carla Siegel. “The transformation she's made in four years is remarkable. I give a lot of that credit to her. As a coaching staff we can try and help her get better but she takes on so much herself with her work ethic and determination. I’m so happy and so incredibly proud of the accomplishments she’s gotten int he past year. Her signing that letter today to play at tiffin is a huge compliment to her work ethic.”
