Plunk. Senior Brady Dinkel cast his line into a nearby pond, with the water calm and ready to be shattered. Dinkel enjoys fishing just as much as he loves football and basketball. “I love the thrill you get when you feel the nibble on the end of the line,” Dinkel said. 

Dinkel plans to attend Fort Hays State University or Kansas State University and studying agronomy and plant science because of the high amount of jobs and demand in that field.  

Hunting is also one of Dinkel’s passions, especially getting a deer the past two years. 

Senior Karly Bandel, who has been friends with Dinkel since early childhood, said “He is very outgoing and outspoken. He doesn’t care what other people think about him and lives to the fullest. He likes to just have fun, and really cares about family and friends more than anything if they are having fun.” 

Junior Shadryon Blanka said DInkel is fun and outgoing except in his taste buds.  

“He doesn't like to try new foods,” Blanka said. “He is always trying to have fun with whatever he is doing and knows how to look at the good side of situations.”

 Dinkel is a year-round athlete— having participated in multiple state placings and winning track teams. Sports In Kansas also recognized Dinkel in all three sports. 

“I like the team aspect of sports and being able to win as a team,” Dinkel said. “I’ve been playing sports my whole life and it is a part of me as a person.” 

Brady Allen Dinkel is an outgoing, outspoken, fisherman, hunter, a natural-born leader,  who will undoubtedly be successful in casting his line in the pond of life.
