I want to extend a big congratulations to former Erie QB/WR David Dinkins on being selected to the Morehead State Athletic Hall of Fame. Dinkins will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Friday October 15th, and will have his jersey retired prior to the MSU game vs. Davidson on Saturday October 16th. You can read more about the induction HERE
Dinkins is well known to Erie fans having played for the Erie Freeze from 2005-2006, and earning the 2005 AIFL MVP Award. “Dink” was the first player I signed to a contract for the RiverRats during the inaugural 2007 season and he finished the season as a 1st Team All-League performer at the QB position. Dinkins would go on to play for us at QB/WR with the Erie RiverRats, Wheeling Wildcats, and finally the Erie Storm in 2010. He was known for his electric on-field play and his outstanding personality. Dave was a tremendous player, and an even better person off of the field and in the locker room. “Dink” is moving on to another opportunity in 2011 that is closer to his home and employment and we wish him all the best – his ability and personality will be missed by all. Congratulations!
