Program Highlight: Dohn Prep Athletics

Oct 11, 2022 | Dohn Programs, Students

Dohn Prep Athletics provides a pathway for students to take their academic and athletic talents to the next level, reaching for their goal of playing collegiate sports! 

Now in its 4th year, Dohn Prep is flexing more muscle than ever before, continually developing an environment where student-athletes can learn, compete, and succeed.

In 2018, the program’s first year, five Dohn Prep graduates earned college basketball scholarships. In the past two years that number has doubled to 10, meaning that over a quarter of graduates earned college scholarships! This year saw the first female collegiate scholarship recipient in Tandra Smoot, who joins the Wilberforce University basketball team this fall.

This year, Dohn Prep has expanded its Sports offerings to include:

    • Men’s Basketball
    • Women’s Basketball
    • Football
    • Boxing
    • Baseball
    • Cheerleading
    • Wrestling
    • Track & Field
    • Volleyball Training

Dohn’s football team continues to strengthen. The positive culture at the school and the competitive, strong nature of the student athletes has raised their standards. They are competing at a higher level level this year and people are taking notice. In the classroom and on the field/court, Dohn Prep students are gaining a confidence they never had before. Students are being told that they CAN do great things, they BELIEVE that they can do great things, they go out and DO great things.

While Dohn Prep student athletes are aiming high with their performance in the classroom and in their sport, Dohn teachers and staff have elevated goals of their own this year. Under their leadership and guidance, targeted expectations include:

    • Increased Enrollment
    • 100% Attendance and Graduation Rate
    • Lowest Discipline Report in the District
    • 100% Testing Rate for all State Tests
    • High Academic Achievement
    • High Parental Involvement
    • Increased College Exposure & Scholarship Opportunities

Did You Know?

The Black Panther is one of the smartest and most powerful animals in the world! It is fearless and strong, is agile and has endurance. Dohn’s mascot, the Panther, plays a major role in hyping up the crowds and supporting our teams. Dohn Prep students rotate suiting up as the mascot…all it takes is (very) high energy, great school spirit, and an entertaining personality. 

It’s going to be another great year at Dohn Prep – PANTHER PRIDE!
