Corbitt, Doctor honored to be Gray Collegiate Academy’s first all-star football selections
West Columbia, SC – Dallaz Corbitt and Josh Doctor have become more familiar with the term “first” than ever before.
In their final seasons on the football field at Gray Collegiate Academy, the seniors helped the War Eagles to their first-ever region title, first-ever playoff win, and now the two are the school’s first-ever football players selected to all-star teams.
Corbitt, a defensive lineman, was selected to play in the Shrine Bowl in Spartanburg, and Doctor, a wide receiver, was chosen for the North-South All-Star Game in Myrtle Beach. Both games will be played on December 15.
The two playmakers said getting recognition of their school is what excited them the most about being selected.
“This means so much to be the first player from Gray selected to an all-star game because not only will it allow me to make a name for myself, but more importantly it makes a name for my school,” Corbitt said. “Only the best of the best are invited to play in the Shrine Bowl. I can’t wait to play.”
Doctor added, “Representing my school is everything. I’m just excited to get Gray’s name out there for football.”
Gray Collegiate head football coach Adam Holmes said of Corbitt and Doctor they are most deserving of being selected.
“I just think it’s a testament to their hard work,” Holmes said. “I think the success of our program as well has opened the eyes of those voting and realize what kind of players we have at Gray Collegiate Academy.”
The two played a key role in Gray’s first region title in school history this season. The War Eagles advanced to the second round of the Class AA playoffs before falling to Bamberg-Ehrhardt.
“For Gray to have a player in the Shrine Bowl and the North-South game is amazing,” Holmes said. “Some schools never get this opportunity. I am just excited for Dallaz and Josh on this amazing accomplishment.”
Corbitt is committed to play football at the University of Central Florida. Doctor has a scholarship offer to play at Allen University, but has yet to make a decision.
