Miami Days

Standish Dobard, better known as Stan, committed to Miami as a heralded tight end from his home state of Louisiana. A consensus four-star recruit among the major recruiting services, Dobard was a featured member of a recruiting class that included Al-Quadin Muhammad, Stacy Coley, and Artie Burns.

In his first year as a Hurricane, Dobard spent most of his time as a reserve tight end stuck behind Clive Walford and Asante Cleveland. His only stat on the season would be a single reception against Savannah State.

With a season of experience and a solid performance throughout spring practices, Dobard looked to take the next step in the offense. With three starts at TE, Dobard played in all 13 games of the 2014 season. Stuck in the shadow of future Oakland Raider Clive Walford, Dobard made the most of his chances, with seven receptions for 147 yards on the season.

Dobard entered his junior season as a veteran tight end. Dobard started eight games at that season and reached the endzone for his first TD as a Hurricane in week one against Bethune-Cookman. Statistically speaking, Dobard’s best game was two receptions against Cincinnati for 30 yards. He would go on to finish the season with eight receptions for 90 yards, one touchdown, in eight starts.

In his senior year as a Miami Hurricane, Dobard dropped to third in TE depth chart behind David Njoku and Christopher Herndon IV. To his credit, Dobard never became a distraction. Offering advice and continuing to contribute in any form or fashion the team needed. So it was within reason when Dobard made the switch mid-season to the defensive line.

His stat line is not going to blow anyone away, but for those who have seen him work during his four years, they’ll realize that numbers do him a disservice. While he is viewed as a project entering the NFL, Dobard possess the drive to have a successful pro career.
