Simpson Award Finalist Dalton Peterson of Encampment [VIDEO]
Dalton Peterson of Encampment has been an exceptional athlete in his prep career. On the basketball floor in his senior year, he averaged 21 points and a game shot 80% from the free-throw line. In his career with the Tigers, he was named all-state 3 times. Peterson was also part of Encampment's triumphant return to the football field in 1A 6 man where he led the team in passing yards, touchdowns, and tackles.
