Daniel Pruet was raised in Tuscaloosa and his personal and professional experiences have shown him the how big of an impact being on a team can have on a young person. Daniel grew up playing baseball at the YMCA and at PARA, and he played baseball and football at Central High School. Daniel has also coached youth baseball since 2007.
Daniel has practiced criminal law in Tuscaloosa since 2006. He spent five years prosecuting violent crimes at the Tuscaloosa County District Attorney’s Office and he has practiced criminal defense since 2011. A large part of his practice is dedicated to helping young adults work through bad situations, and he believes that exposure to sports is one way to reduce the chance of children getting involved with the criminal justice system when they get older. Young people have a better chance to succeed if they play for a coach who is investing their time and resources in a team that struggles and succeeds together.
Daniel is married to Caryn Pruet, and they have raised three kids together. He is an elder at Trinity Presbyterian Church and likes to spend time at his family’s farm and on the baseball field.
