Gratitude To The Utes
“I have cherished every single moment I have stepped onto the football field, and my time at both Utah and USD is something I will hold in my heart forever. I will never forget every drop of blood and sweat, every triumph, every tear shed and every memory made. Throughout this journey as a football player, I have learned and grown and pushed myself to places I never thought possible. I have experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and these bonds and lessons and relationships I know will last a lifetime.
Forever a Ute Legend!! Thanks for everything you’ve given to the team, the U and all of Ute Nation! ❤️❤️❤️

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that, due to an injury, I will not play in the Rose Bowl. My plan is to rehab and prepare for the NFL Draft. I will, however, still attend the Rose Bowl and support and cheer for my teammates. I am so excited to watch them compete on January 2nd.
Thank you to all of my coaches, my brothers, my family, and all of the incredible fans. I am so grateful for this team and my experiences and I can’t wait the next chapter in my football career. Go Utes, always!”
Always A Ute
Kincaid has displayed a great amount of pride and loyalty to the programs he has been involved with through his college career. The talented tight end was an under-the-radar find for the Utes at the University of San Diego. At Utah, Kincaid became a star and a real problem for teams to defend in 2021 and 2022 helping them earn back-to-back Pac-12 Titles and Rose Bowl appearances.
I also have a heavy heart yet feel extremely blessed by the opportunity to coach players like @_DaltonKincaid
Great football player, teammate and human being. Your future is limitless and I look forward to seeing you continue to be amazing. #TNT https://t.co/pWEIk3k5k5

Kincaid accepted an invite to participate in the Senior Bowl and will likely also be invited to the 2023 NFL Combine.
