Dorsey football manager Stafon Johnson believes the Dons are ready to return to the City Section’s top division, the Open Division.
“I really think we have the athletes and the willpower,” he said. “If we stay healthy, we can be a dangerous team.”
Back for the Dons is All-City running back Javaun Lewis Jr., Johnson’s nephew, who is a 225-pound junior. There’s size up front with 340-pound junior Jamari Stephens and 305-pound junior Michael Anderson.
Chad Sabal, a transfer from Hawkins, and Jeremy Olufulme, a transfer from Cathedral, are fast receivers/defensive backs. Returning Semaj Dunn will also be an impact receiver.
The quarterback will be Ciel Myles, a transfer from Gardena Serra.
Johnson said the roster reached 58 players this week and continues to grow. The Dons will have a junior varsity team this season.
Johnson has also added his former Dorsey teammate, Chris Matthews, who played in the NFL, to his coaching staff.
