Ken Dalton Retires From Coaching

I'd like to tip my "helmet" to our local Reno icon Coach Ken Dalton and wish him a grand farewell as he steps down as the head coach for McQueen High School in Reno, NV.

Ken Dalton has touched and changed thousands of lives over his 40 year coaching career. He is the most winning high school coach in Nevada, and has coached the McQueen High School Lancers for the entire 27 years they've been in existence. He has over 300 wins under his belt and 6 State Championships. I had predicted after his next championship win, he might retire. The Lancers won the State Championship this past season by one point, and it seems my prediction was true.

Chris Carr was but a mere pup when Coach Dalton gave him the Lancer Pride. He went on to play for the Oakland Raiders, and this past year played for the Tennessee Titans. When he signed on to play pro during his draft year...Ken Dalton was one of the first phone calls he made.

My son Quaid had the privilege to play for Dalton on both sides of the ball for four years. I thank Coach Dalton for the influence, discipline, and skill he brought to my son's life not only as an athlete, but also as a man. The sidelines at Lancer Field will never be the same again Daddy D :) Thanks for the memories.
