College football: Former Pacelli lineman has big shoes to fill on UT-Chattanooga offensive line

It looks like former Pacelli lineman Taylor Dodds (6-5, 260) is gearing up for what could be a very eventful summer at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga.

Dodds redshirted last season as a freshman but could not play after shoulder surgery. This year, though, he's in position to take up a starting spot in a depleted offensive line, according to this article from the Chattanooga Times Free Press. I first saw the story posted on Twitter by @VikingBoosters, which I must say does a pretty excellent job posting info on Pacelli sports of all sorts.

And here's a slightly more recent story with a little bit of info on the UT-Chattanooga offensive line situation.

Dodds was a first-team Ledger-Enquirer All-Bi-City lineman in 2009 when he graded out at 82 percent for Pacelli.
