Dalen Lemke is a 5'11", 190 lb. RB/LB from Caledonia. As a Junior, Lemke helped lead the rushing attack for the 5-time State Champion Warriors. He is a very strong runner, sticks his foot in the ground and gets North-and-South quickly. Lemke is also real shifty, powerful and has plenty of break away speed. On defense, he reads his keys and fills the hole quickly to make a lot of tackles in the backfield. Lemke had 75 carries for 536 yards, (7.1 yds. a carry), 5 touchdowns on offense. Defensively, he had 66 total tackles, 4 for loss, and 3 forced fumbles. He also earned All District Honorable Mention to cap the season.
