Everybody, my name is Dalton Risner, you can call me Big D! I graduated in December of 2017 at Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies, received a minor in Leadership studies, and am currently exploring a coaching certificate degree. I am currently a part of the football team here at Kansas State, and have been blessed enough to be a four-year starter on the offensive line and a 3-year team captain.
I come from an extremely small town in Colorado, called Wiggins. The population is around 1,000, I had thirty-two kids in my graduating class, and the biggest news to hit Wiggins in awhile is the chicken strips at the local gas station! Coming from Wiggins, to play Division 1 football at Kansas State, was a dream come true.
Ever since I can remember, sports have been my passion in life, and as I further my career in football it becomes more apparent that football will end someday. Throughout my years in college I found a passion for impacting the lives of other people, putting smiles on the down faces of others, and utilizing the platform god gave me to inspire those around me. I recently started finding more and more ways to reach out to people, through working with special needs people, to kids with cancer, to even a recently new foundation called “Rise Up”. I am so excited about having this page to share stories, videos, and to hear all your feedback!
