The preseason accolades are well underway for Dunbar native Aaron Dobson, as the Marshall wide receiver has been named to the Conference USA first team by Blue Ribbon.
He likely will be the Thundering Herd's only first-team selection by the preseason magazines. Phil Steele has placed Dobson on the first team in his publication.
Dobson had 49 receptions for 668 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2011. His backhanded TD catch against East Carolina had drawn more than 1.8 million views on YouTube.
