There was a heads up from the Tennesseean on Sunday that CBS planned to air a profile in homage to the late Zaevion Dobson, who heroically gave up his life to save three teenage girls in a drive-by shooting at Fulton High School in Tennessee. The piece didn’t disappoint.
Reported by All-Pro wide receiver Brandon Marshall, CBS’ piece highlighted both Zaevion’s personalty and his talent, and the unique combination they provided which appeared to have him ticketed for a future in college football. As his brother Zach, who will compete at Austin Peay told Marshall, the sport was, “their ticket out.”
Instead, Zaevion’s own commitment to always doing the right thing, no matter the cost, led to the premature tragic end of his life, and the legacy he has left behind.
You can check out the entire piece above, complete with interviews of the Dobson family, the Fulton coaching staff and others. We highly recommend it.
