Another one of Section II’s standout players will look to make his impact in Division I College Basketball for the next four years. Former Guilderland guard Cameron Dobbs will be playing forMississippiValleyStateout of the South Western Athletic Conference next season. Dobbs is coming off his senior year in which he won Suburban Council Player of the Year for the Dutchmen, scoring at 21.9 points per-game, and racking up 4 assists a contest.

Dobbs said it was the community environment at MSVU that made it the right choice for him. “My most influential aspect had to be the fact that MVSU is such a great place to be. After visiting I noticed that the entire school, entire faculty and administration and the students treat one another as if they’re family. It’s definitely a great place to be and also a great place to grow and develop”, said Dobbs in an interview with Upstate Scout.

The Delta Devils are coming off a season in which they went 17-1, won the SWAC regular season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Former MSVU Head Coach Sean Woods originally recruited Dobbs, but after he departed forMoreheadState, Dobbs will now play for coach Chico Potts.  Dobbs says he has been playing against elite competition that has prepared him to play DI college hoops. “Playing against top talent my entire life and also having the best coaches in the capital district train me and work with me in order to get me ready for the next level has prepared me for the next level of Basketball”, said Dobbs.

The 5’11’ Dobbs will play point guard at the next level, despite having played off the ball his senior season, since the Dutchmen needed his scoring. Dobbs thinks that his all around ability to play the point position will be his greatest asset. “I am a point guard that can not only facilitate, but also be a scorer, a great defender, a leader, and also a coach on the court” Dobbs said about his game. 

Dobbs’ admits he will need to bulk up to play in the SWAC, but his quickness, scoring, and ball handling ability turned him into one of Section II’s elite talents and should translate well to the college level.  Dobbs credits his family for getting him to where he is today. “Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am now”, said Dobbs. “Their constant confidence in me and support they put in me is my fuel to make me push myself harder, and give my all every time I step on the court.”

Upstate Scouting wants to thank Cameron Dobbs for answering our questions and wishes him the best of luck atMississippiValleyStatein the upcoming season.
