Daly is a solid all-around receiver who can make people miss and catch balls over the middle. His real strength, though, seems to be the connection he has with Millett on balls thrown down the field.
Millett’s deep ball seems to carry more than opposing defensive backs expect, which allows Daly to use his speed to run under it.
It’s a connection that will no doubt be heard from again this season as the Magicians try to make a deep run in the Division 3 Northeast playoffs.
