The Naval Academy lost a great athlete, so Dale claims, when he went unsat plebe year. A born snake, he can be seen tripping lightly at all the hops, usually with the belle of the ball. Dale's jovial smile hides a serious and conscientious nature that is seldom seen by those who know him only slightly. His friends know him as capable and dependable, in fact, Dale was going to star one year, but never found the time.
