Philadelphia Soul head coach Clint Dolezel will be inducted into the Arena Football League Hall of Fame following a record-setting 13-year playing career. A ceremony will take place on April 13 before the Soul and Iowa Barnstormers game.

In his career, he spent time with six different teams. He won a championship with the Grand Rapids Rampage in 2001 and spent the final three seasons of his career with the Dallas Desperados.

During his playing career, he completed 65.8 percent of his passes and had a QB rating of 117.8 while finishing with 95 career wins.

When Dolezel retired in 2008, he was third all time in career passing yards with 44,564 and second in touchdown passes with 931.

“He might be the most competitive player that ever put on the pads,” Philadelphia Soul general manager and AFL Hall of Fame Operating Board member Tom Goodhines said in a statement. “He was already acting as a coach on the field and was consistently among the league’s best year-in and year-out and has the statistics to back it up. His teams were always in the hunt for a title whenever he was under center.”

Dolezel will be inducted alongside five other members, including Iowa head coach and former Philadelphia head coach Mike Hosensee.
