Dakota would like to thank his parents for providing him the opportunity to play sports. He would also like to thank Jon Roberts, Andrew Jannsen, Dave Lewis, Nathan Rowlett, John Felton, and Kyle Cowan for not just being great coaches but great role models.
Message from the Athletic Director: Dakota, wow, you have amazed me since you were in junior high. Your ability to manage school, three sports & sometimes four in a school year, and own a thriving business has been incredible to witness. You have been a man who has dealt with so many things and moving pieces yet you never seem stressed or overworked. You have an incredible ability to stay calm and focused under pressure. While competing you have been a leader and voice of reason many times. I have enjoyed watching you compete but more have enjoyed watching you grow as a young man.
Bible verse chosen for you: Psalms 94:17-19 – If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence. When I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
