John Dorsey has had all in all an offseason as general administrator of the Cleveland Browns, so another award touching base at his doorstep Monday isn’t a stunner.
Its source, in any case, is somewhat of an amazement.
Some time before Dorsey was a list building expert, he played linebacker for the Green Bay Packers. Prior to that, he was a first-group All-American safeguard at the University of Connecticut.
Dorsey’s achievements as a Husky have earned him thought for the College Football Hall of Fame. The Hall declared its 2020 ticket decisions Monday, and Dorsey is incorporated among the 179 players and 38 mentors chose. It is Dorsey’s fifth time on the ticket since 2015.
A double cross Yankee Conference Defensive Player of the Year (1982, 1983), Dorsey drove the Huskies in handles in three straight seasons from 1981 to 1983. He’s tied for most handles in a game (24) in Connecticut history, won four letters, and his 495 vocation handles are the most in the program’s history.
In 1983, he and individual group chief Vernon Hargreaves turned into the primary colleagues in UConn football history to gain All-America respects in a similar season, joining for in excess of 300 handles and driving the Huskies to an offer of the Yankee Conference title.
Dorsey was chosen in the fourth round (99th generally speaking) of the 1984 NFL Draft by the Packers and played six seasons before going to a real existence of exploring and player work force that has driven him to the steerage of the Browns.
Of the 5.33 million people who have played school football, just 1,010 players have earned enlistment into the College Football Hall of Fame. The 2020 Hall of Fame class will be reported in January 2020 before the College Football Playoff National Championship in New Orleans.
