Joshua Dobbs has become the face of the Tennessee football team, and head coach Butch Jones says his quarterback is the quintessential leader.


Joshua Dobbs has been the face of the Tennessee football program for the last few years, taking over as the starting quarterback as a freshman in 2013. Since then, he has been beating opponents with his arm, legs, and smarts.

For head coach Butch Jones, Dobbs becoming a leader of the team has been where he has seen the most change.

“When you look at leadership development, that’s where I’ve been really pleased and proud of Josh. He has continued to improve his leadership skills.”

The 6’3, 210-pound senior from Alpharetta, Georgia has a steadiness about him on the field; never too high or too low. He exudes a calmness, even while playing in front of 100,000-plus people screaming at the defense to knock his head off. That comes across to the team, Jones believes. The quarterback knows the right buttons to push, and is unafraid to lend encouragement with a little bit of fire.

“Josh definitely has the pulse of the team. Sometimes it’s encouragement, sometimes it’s one-on-one, and sometimes it’s team time. He’s always very positive. He’s very upbeat. But he’s also very matter-of-fact.”

Some of that will be needed as the Volunteers enter the final stretch of the season coming off two consecutive losses, including a 49-10 rout by Alabama. Tennessee still has a shot at making the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, one thing Dobbs has yet to do in his illustrious college career.

Jones is certain that his quarterback will make the proper reads – in the huddle, during a play, and when interacting with teammates in the locker room – to guide the Vols to Atlanta.

“He knows exactly what the team needs at a particular moment.”
