Watch: Tribute to Late Dale Wolfley Mentioned on Call of Dante Stills’ First NFL Sack



Dante Stills Cardinals

The late Dale Wolfley was a mentor for many WVU players over the years, and that includes Dante Stills. This makes Wolfley’s name being mentioned in tribute during the broadcast call of Stills’ first NFL sack fitting.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Cardinals posted a clip of the play with the audio that references Wolfley. This now allows everyone to be aware of the special call by Dave Pasch and moment beyond just who was listening in the Arizona market at the time.

Dale’s brother Ron, a fellow WVU football alum, serves as the color analyst for the Cardinals. He was, of course, absent on Sunday due to his brother’s passing the night before.

Ironically, Stills’ sack occurred around the time the sad news of Dale’s death started to break across social media. Since Sunday, football fans everywhere, but especially members of Mountaineer Nation, have been offering their grief and support to Ron, his other brother Craig, who is part of the Steelers broadcast crew, and the rest of the Wolfley family.

Craig thanked those who have sent their condolences and even provided a link to a GoFundMe that has been set up to help assist Dale’s wife and youngest son as they try to move on with life without their husband and father.

Dale Wolfley starred at West Virginia in the late 1980s, playing on the interior of the WVU offensive line from 1986-90, and he transitioned to the coaching ranks following the conclusion of his playing career. He coached at WVU on former head coach Bill Stewart’s staff in the late 2000s, serving as the WVU director of player personnel. He was a key member of WVU’s undefeated regular season squad in 1988 and worked his way into a prominent role throughout his half-decade in Morgantown.

Ron also played at WVU, starring in Morgantown in the early 1980’s before spending a decade in the NFL, most notably with the Cardinals.
