At bet365, we don’t do ordinary.
And neither does Washington Commanders wide receiver Jahan Dotson.
The second-year wide-out helped deliver the play of the game in Washington’s Week 4 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, a 10-yard touchdown reception as time expired in regulation to send the game to overtime.
The strike from Commanders quarterback Sam Howell to Dotson tied the game 31-31 and was the last of a 10-play, 64-yard drive over the final minute and 43 seconds.
It was one of the plays of Dotson’s budding career.
Selected by Washington with the 16th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Dotson has already made his mark as a premier red zone target in the pros.
The Penn State product has eight touchdown receptions in 16 career games, the most of any wide receiver or tight end taken in the 2022 draft - of which there were 47.
“I hate losing more than I like winning,” Dotson said. “I don’t take losing lightly, so whatever I can do possible to win, I'll make it happen.”
Dotson credits his parents for ingraining in him the winning attitude and competitive spirit he brings to the football field.
“I feel like my parents have instilled that in me from a very young age, and it’s been carrying on with me through life.”
Now 23 years old, a first-round draft pick, and an established NFL player, the life lessons Dotson learned in his youth have come full circle.
“The things [my parents] taught me at a young age are coming to fruition,” Dotson said.
