Every Saturday, Josh Dobbs leads the Tennessee offense as its quarterback. But that’s not the only time that Dobbs serves as a leader to his teammates and classmates.
On Tuesday, Dobbs was inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society, which includes some of the most respected leaders, several others whom have ties to the Vols as well.
Dobbs joins fellow former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning and former women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt as members of the honor society.
“To be accepted is an honor and a privilege,” Dobbs said at a press conference on Tuesday. “To be a part of a group that is very prestigious is an honor and privilege and I’m very thankful to be a part of it.”
