“I chose UBC for a number of reasons, including its high academic standards, as well as its beautiful campus,” Dorocicz said, who is originally from Vancouver, BC. “It will be great to return and play for my hometown.”

Dorocicz has only been playing football for two years in his current city of Calgary, Alberta. Now, the 6’3, 240lbs defensive end will be under the tutelage of Head Coach Blake Nill. “He was a tremendous factor in my decision-making process,” Dorocicz said. ‘I’ve heard so many amazing things about his coaching style from past players and I cannot wait to begin playing for him.”

In his young career, the Ernest Manning Griffin (Calgary High School Athletics Association) has represented Team Alberta U18 and the Calgary Wildcats (Calgary Area Midget Football Association). In 2017, he was a Calgary Division 1 all-star and a CAMFA all-star. He was also a CAMFA all-star in 2016.
