FEATURE: RB Dotson hoping to stay healthy, carry heavy load for Abilene High

With almost 1,200 career rushing yards on less than 200 carries, Abilene High’s Phonzo Dotson is well past the point of proving that he’s a dynamic running back.

But after having each of his first two varsity seasons derailed by a series of nagging injuries that have limited his playing time and impact, he’s ready to prove as a senior that he can stay on the field enough to maximize his considerable talents.

A victim of bad luck more than anything else, Dotson was limited by a concussion and high ankle sprain to just 69 carries as a sophomore. And last year as a junior, more lower leg issues kept him from having the breakout campaign he was on pace early to have.
