Like Father, Like Son

Like Father, Like Son

This Houston Memorial athlete is getting to ready make the change this coming season from linebacker to defensive back. Position change or not, college coaches have taken notice.

The Dotson's have have had their fair share of family ties starring on the gridiron both in college and the NFL. The most recent being defensive tackle Santana Dotson who won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers and completed a successful 10 year NFL Career last decade.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise to many that his son, Khari Dotson, would eventually follow in the same direction.

Khari is a 6'2" 185lb DB who will be patrolling the secondary on a regular this season for the Mustangs. The younger Dotson has already heard from the likes of Rice, Texas Tech, Western Kentucky and UTSA.

He awaits his first offer, but over the last few weeks he's been to see the up and coming Roadrunner program.

"I've been to UTSA a few times now. I went to the junior day and spring game. I like it down there. I talked with the coaches, I liked the campus and how the program is starting up," said Dotson.

Wide receiver's coach Tony Jeffery and tight end's coach Charlie Reeve have been the two in contact with Khari.

Last year Dotson played linebacker, but the Houston Memorial staff has already informed him that he'll be making the transition to Safety. He recently turned in a 4.5 speed and the coaches want to use his speed and ability to cover on the back end.

Khari plays with an edge on the field. He's not afraid to hit and plays with a confidence trusting his abilities.

He's approaching the recruiting process with an open mind and having the advice of former College All-American and Super Bowl champ isn't a bad thing.

"My dad has been giving me all the advice he can. Having him help me is great."

As a linebacker Khari logged 9 pass deflections and earned District 19-5A Honorable Mention. Recommended Stories
