Dan Adelhardt named Garden Plain football coach

By Joanna Chadwick

Dan Adelhardt has been named the Garden Plain football coach.

After coaching 15 years at Kapaun Mount Carmel, Adelhardt returns to his small-school roots. Adelhardt coached at Hesston before going to Kapaun.

“I grew up in a small town, so Garden Plain was in the mix,”  Adelhardt said. “They’re supportive of football. They’ve got multi-sport kids. They just play everything and they have high expectations of them.”

Adelhardt replaces Ken Dusenbury, who was named the Andover football coach.

“Garden Plain has had a lot of success,” Adelhardt said. “… Once the kickoff happens and the game starts, for me it truly doesn’t matter where I am. It’s about coaching kids up. Strategizing, having fun.”

Moving on is never easy.

“I’ve had some great, memorable times,” Adelhardt said. “The people of Kapaun, I had great friends, great players and students.

“During this spring, I realized I had the passion still to be a head coach. The Renwick district is a really good, quality school system. They’re supportive of football. It’s a great environment.”
