Dobson's selection won't just be a boost for Herd fans - it will be a pick-me-up for Kanawha Valley football. Let's put it this way: If you can think of an area player drafted since Capital's Darrion Scott (2004, Vikings) and East Bank's Chris Massey (2002, Rams), you're better than me.
Otherwise, Dobson is going to break a nine-year drought. He has earned it.
After the second scrimmage, typically the real highlight of MU's spring, I'll offer up some winners:
And hey, did anybody miss cornerback Darryl Roberts last year?
One wonders if Chuck Heater, the secondary coach, may have more impact than Chuck Heater, the defensive coordinator. If that makes a shred of sense.
Shawney Kersey could have been added, but he is turning into the team's top enigma. He can get open against anybody, but he had a bunch of drops in the two scrimmages.
Can he fix that over the summer, or is this another source of anguish for Herd fans?
