What he brings to Texas’ table: Dorbah is uniquely gifted at rushing off the edge. He’s not the longest or the strongest or the fastest, but he understands angles and does a great job using his hands to get offensive linemen off balance.
Playing at Highland Park, a prestigious Class 5A program in the state, has allowed Dorbah to blossom as a young athlete with elite coaching and facilities. He’s a multiple state champion who has shown up in the biggest games of his career.
Dorbah isn’t big enough to play defensive end full-time. He’ll make the transition to B-backer in the same vein as former UT standout Joseph Ossai, who came on late last year as a freshman and then started this season as a sophomore. Ossai was a defensive end in high school, too. Dorbah can be the natural replacement with the two sharing similar builds, athletic prowess and background.
He said it: “He’s a great person who has been through a lot in his life. Football is his place to shine. He has so much character and he’ll do great in life.” — Highland Park head coach Randy Allen
