Joe Dochee Jr Marist WR Class of 2021 5'10 170
Joe Dochee how was your 2019 season? Last season over at Lincoln Way East I was a slot receiver and it was really a learning year for me playing behind Aj Henning, I was able to learn a lot from him. The coaches moved me around a lot from receiver to DB towards the end of the year. What should college coaches know about you? To any college coaches out there looking at me, I want them to know that not only am I a dog on the field but I’m just as good in the classroom because I know it’s not possible to do what I do on the field without having good grades. Even though I didn’t do as well as I hoped to last season, I’ve prepared myself for a great season this year. I want coaches to know that even though I may not be the tallest kid, I’m the hardest worker on the team. I am also willing to go wherever they need me on the field. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My strongest trait on the field is I’m always going to be a team player and with that comes leadership. My hand to eye coordination, speed, acceleration, and most importantly route running all contribute on the field. But my ability to go up and get the ball and having that mentality every time is what makes me stand out from the rest. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? This off-season was an important one for me because I know I’m in a great position at Marist and I want coaches to see how good I can really be when seeing the field more. This off-season I’ve been working a lot with Dontrell Jackson one of the top QBs in the state in my opinion on route running because I feel when you know how to create that separation, you are unstoppable. On top of that, it’s just been getting stronger day by day and working with different trainers all over so that when we do get that green light to play, I’m ready for a breakout season. What goals do you have for yourself in the upcoming season? This upcoming season I’m making it known I’m settling for nothing less. Me and my team have put in too much work these past few months to settle for anything less. The ultimate goal is to win state but we know what has to get done in order to get there. As for myself, my goal is to be the best I can be for Marist football team. It’s easier when you know you’ve got a coaching staff that believes in you and Marist does a great job of that. This season I’m going to continue to show all the people who questioned my game that I can play at a high caliber.
