Grundy Center High School grad Jeff Dole is among this year's class to be inducted into Iowa High School Athletic Association Football Hall of Fame.
Dole, from the Spartans' class of 1985, was a three-year, two-way starter that was a part of Grundy Center's 1983 state semifinalist and 1984 undefeated state championship teams.
He was the team captain, conference MVP and all-state performer as both a junior and senior. Dole finished with 3,193 rushing yards and 55 touchdowns in his career to go with 160 tackles. As a senior, Dole rushed for 1,710 yards and 33 touchdowns.
Also at Grundy Center, Dole was a starter on the team's state runner-up basketball team and a three-year participant at the state track meet.
After his time with the Spartans, Dole went on to walk-on the football team at Iowa State. He was a three-year starter for the Cyclones in the secondary and twice was the team's defensive MVP and all-Big Eight.
Dole had 135 tackles as a senior in 1988 to set the school record for tackles - which still stands - and was named honorable mention All-America.
He moved on to play two seasons with the Chicago Bruisers in the Arena Football League and currently resides in Grundy Center.
Dole will be honored during halftime of the Class 4A state championship game Friday night at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.
Included in the nine-member Hall of Fame class with Dole are players Bill Reichardt of Iowa City High, Reggie Roby of Waterloo East, John Arnaud of Sioux City North, Matt Whitaker of Ankeny and Mark Kacmarynski of West Bend-Mallard; and coaches Mike Dirksen of Mason City Newman Catholic, Rick Pogemiller of Bellevue and Dave Mineart of Norwalk.
