Today Scott Daniel is probably best known as being the father of Kentucky freshman linebacker Kash Daniel.

However, Scott Daniel has his own special story and will share that and more with Tim Estes and myself on WPBK (102.9 FM) Thursday from 7:30-8 a.m.

On Dec. 16, 1984, Daniel was on a plane with his East Tennessee State basketball teammates, media members and some fans flying to Oxford, Miss., from Birmingham.

However, the plane eventually had to make a crash landing. Somehow, all 33 people on board survived.
