Errol Daniels Hibbert (born May 17, 1944 in Guácimo) is a former Costa Rican football player, who used to played as a striker for LD Alajuelense. He played for the same club his entire career. He currently resides in New York.

Daniels made his debut in the Costa Rican Primera División with only 21 year-old on June 14, 1964 against CS Cartaginés, scoring 2 goals. He started playing as a left forward because the center forward position was being filled by another historic player, Juan Ulloa.

His strengths were his explosive speed and his ferocious shot. He was always distinguished for being an ally with the goal and was top scorer of his local league in 6 seasons (1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1970). Daniels shares the record for most goals scored in the Costa Rican Primera, notching 41 goals for LD Alajuelense during the 1967 season.

He scored 24 goals in 1964, 32 in 1965, 30 in 1966, 41 in 1967, 23 in 1968, 16 in 1969, 25 in 1970 and one goal in 1971 and 1972. He also gained the national tournament with his team in 1966, 1970 and 1971.

His career suddenly faded due to an injury on April 14, 1971. The season was just starting and on the second game he crashed against the goalkeeper from Barrio México, fracturing his right leg. He returned on June 25, 1972 against AD San Carlos, and scored his last goal on September 17 of the same year against Municipal Puntarenas.

Daniels was also part of the Ticos from 1965 to 1970, playing 19 games and scoring 8 goals. He holds the record of 42 goals scored in a season, the best performance for a forward in the Costa Rican Primera División. He is also the all-time top scorer of the league with 197 goals.
