Dovian Ingram Profile
Dovian Ingram is 6'1" 215 and he hopes he is finished growing. "He doesn't want to be taller than 6'2" because he wants to stay at running back," said his mom, Stephanie Ingram.
"We play a wishbone style offense," explained Ranchview Head Coach Terry LeBlanc. "We needed Dovian to play more of an upback position this year. We had two senior running backs last season. Dovian will be our featured back this year."
In his video, you can see Dovian lining up at several positions. His size and versatility allowed Coach LeBlanc to use him all over the field. He still managed to carry the ball 32 times and averaged over 7 yards per carry with 3 touchdowns. He also caught 9 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Ingram has a connection to Louisiana Tech. "I graduated from Tech," said Mrs. Ingram. "My mother lived in Ruston and I still have a lot of family there." "We go to Ruston every summer," added Dovian. "My mom and I watched Tech play on T.V. this year."
Ingram is drawing interst from all over. "It is almost overwhelming," explained Mrs. Ingram. "He gets letters almost every day."
"I haven't been able to talk to too many coaches because of track," said Dovian, who has been clocked in the 200 meters in the low 22's. "A coach from Rice came by the school a couple of weeks ago and I got to talk to him. They want me to go to their camp. I might camp at Baylor. I'm going to camps at Texas A&M, North Texas, and at Southlake Carroll."
"I would say I'm getting the most interest from Texas, Texas A&M, and Baylor," added Dovian. "I wasn't planning on going to many camps, but I'm getting invited to so many."
