Jahan Dotson making most of return to...

NAZARETH, Pa. - Jahan Dotson's time away from Nazareth his junior year made him appreciate the Blue Eagles a little bit more. A broken leg ended his season early in new Jersey and he wanted to come back.

Dotson's ability to play multiple positions has energized this offense. He's scored 13 touchdowns and has opened up the offense for Anthony Harris, Zac Keifer, and Nate Stefanik.

Nazareth is headed to the playoffs and at 5-4 have surprised a lot of people. They finish the regular season Friday at Easton.

After this season, Jahan will go cross country to play college ball at UCLA under Coach Jim Mora. He talked about how the coaching staff made him feel welcome in Los Angeles.

When the UCLA staff asked the Nazareth coaches what separates Dotson from the rest, Nazareth coach Tom Falzone praised Dotson as both a person and a player.

Dotson's year at prep school allowed him to focus academically. He was recreuited by nearly every major college program but he wanted to test himself off the field. UCLA is ranked number 1 in public universities in the latest  US News and World Report rankings. He wants that challenge in the classroom.

There's already a former Lehigh Valley star on track for the NFL. For Jahan, following Saquon Barkley to the league, one of his role models, would be a dream come true.
