One of many examples in the CFL of a player willing to do whatever it takes to make a club, Dan took advantage of an invite to training camp in 2007 as an extra long-snapper after going undrafted that year.

Bringing a positive attitude and a strong work ethic, Dan was asked to remain with the club on the practice roster in 2007 until he returned to school at Bishop's University that fall for his final year of eligibility.

Dan signed a contract with the Lions prior to camp in 2008 and secured his current spot as the team's long-snapper.

2009:  Dan continued to be a significant component of the Lionsí special teams in 2009, filling a key role as the long snapper for punts and some field goals.  Dan also added five special teams tackles. 

2008:  Dan found a regular place on the Lionsí roster in 2008 as the long snapper on special teams, also notching five special teams tackles.

2007:  Spent part of the season on the Lionsí practice roster before returning to Bishopís University to play-out his remaining  year of eligibility.

Games Played:  Career: 36; Playoff: 4; Grey Cup: 0

2007-2009: Dan is entering his fourth season with the club and his third official CFL campaign as a special teams player and backup defensive end.  He has played 36 consecutive games for the Lions and has 10 career special teams tackles. He is one of several players to come to the club from Bishopís University.
McCullough played five seasons at defensive end with the Gaiters after spending two years with the Cegep AAA Champlain Cougars. He also served as the teamís long snap specialist and was selected to the East-West Bowl the last two years. He did not miss a game in his five years with the Gaiters, recording 118 tackles, including 96 solo tackles, in 32 games and also added 18 sacks and 33 TFL. He was selected to the Quebec University Football League All-Star team in 2005.
