Jamestown High School has produced many outstanding athletes and one of the finest has to be Dan O'Neill.
O'Neill was born on March 21, 1951, in Sayre, Pennsylvania, and moved to Jamestown when he was 2. He attended SS. Peter & Paul from 1956-1966 and then was at JHS from 1966-69.
Under the guidance of his father, J. Robert O'Neill, who was a fine golfer himself, the younger O'Neill started fine-tuning his golf game at a young age and then really blossomed for former coach Dick Kimball's JHS team. O'Neill was the Most Valuable Player for the Red Raiders in 1968 and received championship shields from the New York State Public High School Association in 1967 and 1968 for competing in the state tournament.
