Local Joe: Free State grad Dineen aims to rebuild tradition |

During his first year suiting up for his hometown program, Dineen moved to running back from safety when injuries depleted KU’s group of ball carriers. A return to defense under a new head coach along with a move to linebacker provided the 6-foot-2, 212-pound sophomore plenty of incentive to attack his preseason work with intensity. Plus, Kansas lost its top two linebackers from 2014 — Ben Heeney and Jake Love — so the lure of making a real impact felt all the more obtainable for Dineen.

Don’t Call Me Underrated | The Players' Tribune - Chris Harris

There’s a huge stigma to going undrafted. Not a lot of people talk about it, but there is. For a guy who’s drafted, and in particular drafted high, you’re allowed to make so many more mistakes.

You have to go above and beyond — and then above and beyond that.
