Winston Dimel Officially Joins His Father and UTEP Football Team
Kansas State graduate transfer fullback Winston Dimel has officially declared he will play for the orange and blue, as announced on Twitter Sunday evening.
Winston, son of head coach Dana Dimel, was Kansas State's starter at the fullback spot for the past three seasons and had this to say about his transfer choice, via a tweet:
"Excited to announce that I will be playing at UTEP for my senior season while also pursuing a master's degree in leadership studies!" Dimel wrote. "I'm excited to be working with a great group of teammates and coaches in pursuit of a successful season! Time to work! #PicksUp"
He's a three-time All-Big 12 honoree, which makes him just one of 20 players in Kansas State history with three All-Big 12 honors. He started every single game he played in, including 22 rushing touchdowns, 418 receiving yards and four bowl berths and two bowl victories.
Deciding to finish his final college season at another school in January, Winston wanted to find a program that would give him the best possibility for his future and for hopes to play in NFL.
Other than the Miners, Winston had interest from Missouri, Texas A&M and Wisconsin during this offseason. He will be eligible to play immediate since he is a graduate transfer.
