Colorado Springs, Colorado 2021-10-21 22:34:02 –

West Seneca, NY (WKBW) — Dandale, Boy Scout Unit 616, West Seneca, NY, has collected 138 merit badges.

Dan has just won the “Eagle Award” and is waiting for the “Super Nova Award” and the “National Outdoor Award”.

His dad, Davedale, is pretty surprising just to achieve his son’s merit badge, given that he is “only one of the 500 scouts who achieved it in 111 years of scouting.” I point out.

Dan’s says his favorite merit badge was also the hardest. For cycling, he had to ride 50 miles in 8 hours.

“I don’t like bicycles, so I didn’t think I would like them,” he said. “I love cycling for some reason.”

Encouraging him along the way was his scout leader and his parents.

His sadness says, “My wife and I were really happy to find what he really wanted to do. We are trying to support him as much as possible.”

This included driving to Florida during a pandemic, and Dan was able to complete the scuba diving merit badge.

Dan is a freshman at SUNY Buffalo State University in media production and plans a career in sports broadcasting.
