Here's the start of the piece: 

Joshua Dobbs didn't waste much time in making an impact on the college level at Tennessee.

The former Alpharetta standout stepped into the starting quarterback role as a true freshman at Tennessee last year and never looked back as he quickly established himself as a player to watch in the SEC.

Dobbs played the last five games at quarterback - including the last four as a starter - for a Tennessee team that went 5-7 in 2013. He completed 72-of-121 passes for 695 yards and two touchdowns - compiling a 59.5 percent completion percentage in the process.

"I've always trusted in my skills and ability," Dobbs said. "The coaching staff has done a great job with all the quarterbacks to be able to play when needed. So when my number was called, I was able to perform. I still have some things to work on and, of course, that has been the key focus throughout the spring and into the summer and into training camp."
