The grandson of the most famous coach in Georgia Bulldogs history is going to get a shot on the team as walk-on wide receiver.
Really happy to hear that Derek Dooley's son, John Taylor Dooley, has been an invited walk-on for Kirby Smart's Georgia Bulldogs. Great kid— John Brice (@JohnBrice247) January 23, 2017
John Taylor Dooley should be able to get some good advice on the experience: His father Derek was a walk-on receiver at Virginia.
According to Gridiron Now, J.T. Dooley won a high school state title at Dallas’ Highland Park High as part of a team quarterbacked by Jerry Jones’ grandson John Stephen Jones.
Following his unsuccessful stint as Tennessee head coach, Derek Dooley has been a wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys the last four years.
