Hello everyone. My college updates are a few weeks behind, but they are all on the way. After a 4-game weekend, the climax was certainly saved for last in attending the Vikings Quarterback (Watkins Class of 2013). Joshua Dobbs takes the sports world entirely by storm. A concise chronicle of the previous year of his professional career is he has been with SIX NFL teams in the past year. Josh has been with 4 teams this football season alone. In less than a year, Josh has been asked by 3 NFL teams to learn an entire playbook that takes most teams months to teach in just 4-5 days. I don’t think anyone, including myself, can completely understand how complicated an NFL playbook is to learn. I can guarantee that it could only take a Watkinsman to accomplish this feat. Josh Dobbs (aka Astro, aka PassTronaught, AKA JD Rocket) has shown the world the power of intelligence in the profession of football. As a side note, this was done by an African-American quarterback!! Graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering while being labeled as one of their top quarterbacks historically legitimately marked the comeback kid in college.
Josh almost took the Tennessee Titans to the Playoffs after 5 days of study 9 months ago. He showed up 5 days before his first start for the Arizona Cardinals and kept them in every game this year with a depleted staff of players. Sunday was the icing on the cake, showing up in Minnesota 4 days before the game and coming in to play for the Minnesota Vikings. Not only did he play, but he also commanded an offense that scored 30 points and engineered a final drive for a winning touchdown. In his 7th NFL season, I couldn’t be happier for him and his family, who have driven up to 27 hours from Atlanta to Phoenix to support this young man. Joshua Dobbs is now a household name, not just for his ability to spin the pigskin but for his intelligence, better described as brilliance in his profession! Gooooo Dobbs!!
