2013 QB hopes Rising Seniors is launching pad 

January, 6, 2012
Last year, defensive end Jordan Jenkins (Hamilton, Ga./Harris County) put on a show in the inaugural Rising Seniors Junior Bowl, making three sacks, blocking a punt, and wreaking havoc in the offensive backfield throughout the game. Dozens of schools offered as his stock exploded, and on Thursday Jenkins capped off his prep career on the gridiron with two sacks in the Under Armour Alll-America Game. The offensive MVP of this year’s Rising Seniors Junior Bowl is hoping his performance will have a similar effect.

Quarterback Joshua Dobbs (Alpharetta, Ga./Alpharetta) might have been overshadowed by other names during the week, but last Friday he put on a passing clinic, completing 20 of 31 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns. The only participant to throw for over 100 yards or complete a touchdown pass in the event, Dobbs was also the No. 2 rusher in the game with 40 yards on the ground.

“My goal this week was to come out here, play as hard as I could on the field, and prove myself against the best competition in Georgia,” Dobbs said. “I think I did a pretty good job of that in the game.”
