Dodson, Hawks looking to ‘shock the world’

THOMASVILLE — Today’s trip to Death Valley will be a homecoming for one Shorter Hawk.

When the 0-2 Hawks visit Bazemore-Hyder Stadium today for a 7 p.m. showdown with defending NCAA Division II national champion and top-ranked Valdosta State, junior quarterback and former Thomas County Central standout Eric Dodson will be greeted by a bunch of friendly faces.

“I’m kind of treating it like a homecoming,” Dodson said. “There’s been a lot of people contacting me, saying how excited they are to watch me play because they haven’t watched me play since high school.

“So I’m treating it like a homecoming. It’s pretty exciting.”

That trip home to south Georgia isn’t the only cause of excitement for Dodson, though. Rather, the Hawks are looking forward to the challenge presented by the 1-0 Blazers, who were off last week following a 36-21 win against Fort Valley State.

“We definitely have a shock the world mentality when we come down there,” Dodson added. “We’re trying to have a big win.

“Not just me, but as a team, I think we’ve had this game circled on our calendars.”
