In this first ‘Getting to know your Falcon’ post we’re going to talk to Number 88, our Kicker, Dilan Sadler.
Freshman year earned him the #88, the Varsity Kicking spot. For those of you new to Falcon Football, it has been a tradition since the beginning to give #88 to the kicker… Why you ask? I have no idea. If you are reading this and you know the answer, please share.
Our #88 is not just a kicker. While he believes it to be his craft that he will continue to work hard to perfect for not only himself but his team, Freshman year game-long field goal was 32 yards, he is ready to make that 50! He also started as Jocker and Running Back on our C-team (JV team). He had a few standout games, one game getting a 99-yard Pick 6. Another night he was on fire with 4 touchdowns before 4th quarter. That might be why his team voted him C-team player of the year. Special Teams Player of the year, as voted on by the team, had to have been earned by running a fake punt on 4th and 11 to pick up the first down.
Dilan likes to stay busy with Wrestling in the Winter followed by Track in the Spring. He will graduate with the Class of 2023, athletics being his motivation in the classroom as he wants to play college football. His college of choice, Oklahoma State University.
I can’t wait to cheer for this kid as a Cowboy, Go Pokes! We need to see a little more Orange in Washington ????
Until next time!
