Dolezel Takes Over the Stampede Express

October 3, 2009 - Indoor Football League (IFL) - San Angelo Stampede Express News Release

The Stampede Express will have new leadership in 2010. Clint Dolezel has been hired to lead the Stampede Express for the 2010 season. Dolezel is a Texas native. He was born in Lorena, Texas on March 25, 1970. Dolezel brings to the Stampede Express years of playing and coaching experience.

Dolezel started his college football career at Cisco Junior College and was a letterman in football. He was a second team All-Conference selection as a sophomore. He then transferred to East Texas State University where he was a letterman in both football and golf.

After his college career Dolezel was drafted by the Milwaukee Mustangs of the AFL. He then played for the Texas Terror/Houston Thunderbears, the Grand Rapids Rampage, and the Las Vegas Gladiators before settling down in Dallas to play for the Desperados. On March 12, 2006, Dolezel threw his 700th career touchdown, becoming just the third Quarterback in AFL history to do so. The Desperados won that game versus the Tampa Bay Storm 64-35.

Dolezel, along with Wide receiver Terrill Shaw, lead the Grand Rapids Rampage to the 2001 Arena Football Championship. Dolezel and Shaw would eventually become teammates again playing for the Dallas Desperados in 2006. Dolezel was not only the Quarterback, but served as the Offensive Coordinator of the Dallas Desperados.

On April 16, 2007, in a 51-41 home win against the Philadelphia Soul, Dolezel became the very first professional Quarterback to throw 800 touchdown passes. In 2007, Dolezel became the first Quarterback in league history to lead his team to 15 wins in a season. Despite the 15-1 record, Dallas lost to the 7-9 Columbus Destroyers in the first round of the playoffs. In 2008, Dolezel became the first quarterback in league history to complete 900 touchdown passes, in a game versus the Grand Rapids Rampage. In his 13 year career in the AFL, Dolezel passed for 44,564 yards, 955 touchdowns, and had a career QB rating of 117.75.

After the AFL folded, Dolezel went on to become the Offensive coordinator for the Florida Firecats' of the AF2. He helped to lead the Firecats' to a 7 and 9 record and missed out on the playoffs due to a technical error by the league. He is currently a scout for the Dallas Cowboys.

Dolezel is happily married to his wife Chris and has two children, his son Trevor, age 10, and his daughter Molly, age 13. In his spare time he likes to spend time with his family. He is also an avid hunter, fisherman, and golfer.
