Keenan Dodson is beginning to emerge as a defensive force at Peach County High School with a strong skill-set along with projectable size. Standing at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, the defensive lineman is a strong athlete that can gain a tremendous push at the line and possesses above-average flexibility. He also possesses the athleticism to play either nose guard or defensive end while also seeing time anchoring the offensive line this season.
The lineman started to realize the chance that he had to play at the next level when Peach County head coach Chad Campbell spoke to the young freshman, at the time, and provided constant encouragement and reminding him to continue striving to improve at his game. His junior campaign saw tremendous strides in the junior’s play as he realized how to bring more energy and have it translate into results. Through week 8 of the 2014 season, recorded 42 total tackles to go along with six sacks and 16 quarterback hurries.
Aside from the gridiron, the junior has seen success on the Trojans’ track and field squad. During his sophomore season, he helped Peach County to qualifying for the state meet while participating in the 110-meter hurdles and the 200-meter hurdles.
He maintains A’s and B’s in the classroom and takes part in helping kids at local elementary schools. Dodson regularly volunteers his time at local elementary schools and various projects where he spends time reading to children and assists in supervising children as they pick various fruits at the Lane Southern Orchard.
