Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College Thunder Football punter Dalton Bryant was named Minnesota College Athletic Conference Eastern Division Special Teams Player of the Week for games played on Saturday, August 27, 2016.
Bryant used a strong, accurate leg in his punting debut for the Thunder by averaging 38.5 yards for six punts during the Thunder’s 40-19 victory over Minnesota State-Fergus Falls on the road last Saturday. Bryant had a long punt of 51 yards while also pinning the Minnesota State-Fergus Falls offense inside their own 20-yard line five times during the game. Dalton is a freshman from Hinesville, Georgia.
The Thunder’s 40-19 victory over MCAC Western Division opponent Minnesota State-Fergus Falls game was the season opener for both teams. The Thunder offense produced 491 total yards, balanced well with 221 rushing yards and 270 passing yards.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
