The stay-at-home orders for Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Dakota Dozier won’t keep him from staying in top shape at his home in Raleigh, North Carolina. Dozier, a 2014 Furman University health sciences graduate and football player for the Paladins (2009-2013), applies some creativity in setting up a makeshift gym. Also during the COVID-19 offseason, he volunteers with 3M to create videos of science experiments that children can replicate at home. Local Raleigh ABC affiliate 11 Eyewitness News covered the story.

Dozier was twice named an FCS All-American by the Associated Press, with a unanimous All-American vote in 2013, and was named an All-SoCon selection for three consecutive seasons. Dozier was drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round (137th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. Learn more about his first NFL start in a 2016 Furman News story.
