After football, Carroll Dale became a popular public speaker assisting the work of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Carroll many times said, "The Bible is my number one Playbook." As a gifted receiver at Virginia Tech and later in the National Football League, Carroll Dale had another offensive one that enabled him to score touchdowns. At Virginia Tech, Dale started in 39 consecutive games...every one except the first game of his freshman season. In all four seasons he led Virginia Tech in receiving. He finished with a career total of 67 receptions, 15 touchdowns and a high average of 17.8 yards per catch. During his college career, he was named a second-team All-America as a junior and a first-teamer as a senior. That year, he was Player of the Year in the Southern Conference, and for three consecutive years (1957-59) he was voted the Roanoke Touchdown Club's Lineman of the Year. He captained Virginia Tech in his senior year and following graduation he played five seasons with the Los Angeles Rams. Dale scored on a 57-yard touchdown pass in his first NFL game. He also played with the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears.
