WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The “Human Joystick” Dante Hall, the former Kansas City Chiefs kick return specialist, was back in Chiefs country for the Greater Wichita Sports Banquet Thursday night.

At 5 foot 8 inches, Hall played nine seasons in the NFL. His message to the athletes at the banquet was small people can do big things.

“I think it’s important because of the mission these high school and collegiate athletes are trying to achieve,” said Hall. “Sometimes you just need to hear someone, or see someone my size and be like I can do this if that little guy can do it, it’s important.”
