Coming off playing in both The Spring League last November and the XFL, as a member of the Los Angeles Wildcats during the pandemic shortened 2020 season, offensive lineman Dwayne Wallace recently joined the Pirates for the upcoming 2021 campaign. Back in January of 2019 Wallace played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl game, the premier postseason all-star game for draft-eligible college seniors. He was voted offensive line MVP in the ‘19 Tropical Bowl, another college football all-star game. As a result of showcasing his talents, Wallace spent time in both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears mini-camps during 2019.
In 2018 Wallace joined the Big 12, transferring to the University of Kansas and playing in 12 games, starting 10 at right guard for the Jayhawks. It was the final stop of a productive and successful college football career. Wallace played in 12 games for Cal-Berkeley during the 2016 season, anchoring a solid offensive line. He played a key role in protecting quarterback Davis Webb, who set a number of school passing records and was sacked the second fewest times of any QB in the Pac-12.
Previously, playing for Riverside City College in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, Wallace’s star shined bright. In two seasons he helped the Tigers achieve a combined 18-5 record. As a sophomore the Tiger offense finished in the top 20 of nineteen offensive categories ranked by the state of California. Wallace’s team also ranked twelfth in rushing offense per game, fourteenth in total offensive yards per game, and sixth in scoring per game, among others.
Wallace was first-team All American, All-State and All-National Division of the Southern League in Southern California Football Association honors as a freshman. The Tigers rushing offense ranked eighteenth in the state with 184.9 yards per game. The team racked up a 10-2 overall record, 6-0 in league play, and earned a National Division title.
In addition to Wallace’s stellar career playing college football, he earned a degree in social welfare. Wallace is entering his age-26 season with the Pirates.
