Checking In With DE/TE Seth Dooley

Glenvar (Salem, VA) product Seth Dooley knew grey-shirting was an option, so he wasn’t surprised when the Virginia Tech staff asked him to delay enrollment until January of 2013.   The extra time should be a benefit as Dooley only played two years of high school football.

All set academically, Dooley will take a few courses at a local community college this fall.  His main focus athletically is to continue to add good weight and strength, which he has been successful in doing so far this offseason.

“I played at about 215 pounds last season.  I’m 245 pounds right now,” said Dooley, who signed a letter of intent with the Hokies in February of 2012.  “I’m getting more weight and maintaining my speed.”

Consistent weight room work has been a key to Dooley’s physical development.  His self motivation in the weight room certainly helps.
