Dalles is from Palo, Iowa just northwest of Cedar Rapids. Like many Iowa football players, Coach Reese Morgan was the recruiting connection from high school to the next level, and after Coach recognized Dalles while recruiting fellow Hawkeye Shaun Beyer, Dalles turned down multiple next level track and field opportunities to walk on and play football for the Hawkeyes. Dalles talks about living his dream in the black and gold, fighting through a crazy off season that was 2020, and relives his favorite memories as a hawk. Dalles became a viral sensation with his singing ability as well in the summer of 2019 when his original song 'We Wave', a piece about the Iowa childrens hospital and waving tradition, blew up on facebook. The video has totaled over a million views and sent Dalles into a new path that he is continuing post athlete career. We discuss all of this and more.
