Bellotti mentioned that coach Ernie Kent approached him and emphasized Dorsainvil's importance to the team. Kent mentioned the need for Dorsainvil to participate in basketball conditioning this off-season. Whether or not quitting was something Dorsainvil was planning on doing anyway remains to be seen.
But defensive line coach Michael Gray discussed Dorsainvil's development over spring.
"It's tough. Most people take (the basics) for granted. He never even played football in high school. He was so far removed from the game of football. It's a little different from basketball. In football your reactions are so important. He never had developed the fundamentals of playing (defensive line): your body position, your hands and your feet. It takes a lot of instincts," commented Gray.
Gray continued, "Kids play from Pop Warner all the way up through high school, and usually when we get them they've got those fundamental instincts down. He was a couple years removed from getting the fundamentals down."
