Louisville Shawnee High School
Ronnie Daniel was the floor general who orchestrated the1973 Shawnee High School Indians run to the Kentucky high school basketball Sweet 16 championship. He was selected to the All-State Tournament Team and Courier Journal All-State Team in 1973. In his senior year, Ronnie was selected as a McDonald’s All-American and played in their Derby Classic All-Star Game. He made the 6th region all-tournament team three consecutive years, a recognition that few have earned. Shawnee’s 1973 state championship run culminated with a victory over powerful Louisville Male High School led by Hall of Famer Wesley Cox. Daniel scored 30 points and dealt out eight assists in one of the great state championship game performances of all-time. He was a stellar guard who could score, defend, assist and lead. And lead the Indians he did, to the ultimate prize in Kentucky high school sports, the Sweet 16 championship.
