Jovany Doe was overlooked in 2018 but that may change this season.

RIVERDALE — Drew High School has several athletes on the roster entering 2019 but none may be more lowkey than Jovany Doe.

According to MaxPreps.com, Doe managed to play in seven games and scored a touchdown but there may be more to this athlete that doesn’t show. Recently in the spring game, Doe was on the field and executed well as a lead blocker on runs, an intangible skill that is often forgotten about.

In the passing game, he’s just as dangerous. The ability to get open, make defenders miss and find the soft spot in coverage also makes him a weapon for the Titans.

The junior has a plan for the 2019 season to create a name for himself, but he also wants the program to have a winning season and even win a championship. Doe’s other goals for the season also include having a good GPA and play great on the field.

The wide receiver also moonlit as a running back last season but it was a fruitful endeavor and he learned from it.

“I learned that being patient and waiting on blocks and holes to open is what creates big runs and other opportunities,” Doe said confidently. “I’ve learned that I’m versatile and I can play multiple positions to help create opportunities for our team and offense.”

Not only is he versatile as a player but the team itself is looking at becoming more versatile altogether.
