Dave Dickenson Inducted into CFL Hall of Fame, Wins Grey Cup as Offensive Coordinator

Posted: Updated:

It was quite the weekend for Great Falls native and Montana football legend, Dave Dickenson.

Dickenson, a two-time state champion at CMR and national champion in 1995 at the University of Montana, was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame over the weekend. And to cap it all off, he was also apart of the the Calgary Stampeders Grey Cup win on Sunday over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, 20-16.

As a player, Dickenson played 10 seasons in the CFL. The star quarterback began his career in 1997 with the Calgary Stampeders and then played for the BC Lions from 2003-2007. He then returned to Calgary for the 2008 season after which he retired from playing football. 

Dickenson won two Grey Cups - 1998 (Calgary) and 2006 (BC). He finished his career with a quarterback rating of 110.4, passing for 22,913 yards and 154 touchdowns, all while completing nearly 68 percent of his throws.

As a coach, Dickenson has been with Calgary since 2009 and has been the offensive coordinator since 2011. This is his first Grey Cup as a coach, giving him three as a player/coach.

Dickenson is widely considered as one of the greatest athletes of all time from Montana. Earlier this year, he was recognized as the best athlete ever to play in the Big Sky Conference.
