Stampeders’ Dave Dickenson part of 2018 college football Hall of Fame class

Dave Dickenson is one of 10 players being inducted into the college football hall of fame in the 2018 class.

At the University of Montana, Dickenson threw for 13,486 yards and 116 touchdowns with a 68.7 career completion percentage while setting numerous NCAA, conference and school records. In 1995 he led the Grizzlies to an NCAA I-AA National Championship. That led to Dickenson being known as “Super Dave” in Montana.

During his senior season, in 15 games, he threw for 5,676 yards and 51 touchdowns. After that impressive campaign, Dickenson won the 1995 Walter Payton Award, which is equivalent to the Heisman Trophy for that division. He was a two-time first-team All-American who led the nation in passing in 1994-95.

Dickenson will officially be inducted during the 61st NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 4 in New York City.

    This guy is in every hall of fame there is.
    One can only imagine the stats this guy would have had he not suffered so many injuries.
    He can go to NY next Dec with the Grey Cup!!!

  3. Dave is nothing but a class act all the way. Everything he has done in football has been great. Glad he is with the Stamps!

  4. Of course I can’t post any articles on this website but its interesting the difference how the lives turned out if you compare two local Great Falls, MT star college players – Dave Dickenson and Ryan Leaf. Both were incredible in college, one went to the CFL, and intelligently progressed throughout his career. The other was a first round NFL pick that had predictions of being a hall of fame QB. We know how the story played out for both of these guys. Great to have “Super Dave” up here in Calgary. He’s a solid guy, well respected and maybe, just maybe, he’ll win a championship before he retires. LOL.
