Ryan Dinwiddie a Future Bulldog Assistant??
The most efficient passer in the history of the NCAA used to have field days against Fresno State, but someday he may walk the sidelines of Jim Sweeney Field. He single handily defeated Fresno State in 2001, destroyed them in 2002 and pulled the hat trick by beating the 'Dogs again in 2003. Pat Hill passed on the former Elk Grove prep out of high school only to see him set WAC and NCAA records for three years.
Despite all the accolades for the 2003 WAC Offensive Player of the Year, he has been unable to land in the pros. From the NFL to the CFL, Dinwiddie has had no luck. He is still waiting for his shot.
If he doesn't make in the pros he has his education to fall back on. He may consider coaching even at Fresno State?
The degree, Dinwiddie knows, will help him in any post-football future, especially if he opts to go into coaching. His former coaches, Chris Petersen and Dan Hawkins, have talked to him about it. So, too, has Fresno State coach Pat Hill.
Now that would be a site see Ryan Dinwiddie in Bulldog red.
