Josh Dobbs is proud of what he accomplished last season.
Speaking with Teresa Varley of Steelers.com, the former Tennessee quarterback opened up about a number of topics as he begins his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In one of the questions, Dobbs was asked about his proudest football moment or memory. He touched on his play while leading the Volunteers in 2016, when Tennessee finished 9-4 with a victory over Nebraska in the Music City Bowl.
What is your proudest football moment or memory?
This season, my senior year, was the most difficult off the field, in the classroom. So winning SEC player of the year on the field, while balancing my most difficult school semester is something I am very proud of.
It’s interesting to read about Dobbs’ feelings here. He threw for a career-high 2,946 yards with 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions last year. He also finished with a 150.6 passer rating in 2016.
Of course, Dobbs was an aerospace engineering student at Tennessee. In the same interview with Varley, Dobbs said football and engineering go hand-in-hand.
It couldn’t have been easy for Dobbs, taken as the No. 135 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, to balance his football and classroom demands last fall. He should be proud of what he achieved in both areas.
