    This Dawson boy kicks ass! I know these are only highlights. But I also saw his O video (a bulldozing-pancaker) and he has a real mean streak in him like he wants to hurt somebody out there. Is something wrong with him that we don’t know about, because you’d think that he would be getting some attention from some division 1 schools based on his size and what you see on the highlights?

      J-Rock: Like I said Dawson is intriguing. I saw all of his games on film and like every prospect he has areas to be improved upon. However, he shows the potential to become a big-time player. To make that happen: this season he will need to play every down like he does on his highlight film plus kick it up a notch. If he can do that he will at the very least draw attention to himself and he will fall no less than a very good d-2 program —he will even have a shot at the bigs (D1AA or even a D-1A) if he comes up really huge in 2011.
      As of now, he has not been on the big schools’ recruiting radar.
      I’ll just say that if I were a big league coach, based on what I saw on film, I would at least keep tabs on him to see how he develops this season. He made a lot of impressive plays last year — starting both ways!

    I really enjoyed this video because it was nice to see some up close linemen action for a change and Don Dawson can play some ball. I know it’s a long shot but I like his aggressiveness and I hope that he will be successful this year so that the Hawkeyes maybe give him a shot.
    Thanks for sharing.
