A Last Hurrah

In one of the Utes’ most successful seasons in program history, tight end Dalton Kincaid was consistent and dependable—especially in the red zone. As the U’s 2021 receiving touchdown leader, Kincaid gave the team a big boost in their bid to secure a second consecutive Pac-12 Championship when he—and fellow powerhouse TE Brant Kuithe—opted not to pursue a spot in the 2022 NFL draft.

We caught up with Kincaid and asked why he chose to spend one more season at the U. “I want to go as far as we can—as far as we’re capable,” he says. “Whatever happens, happens. But I want to know we gave it our all.”
