Doughty’s story makes him an underdog. His ability to overcome it all makes him a feel-good story.
“Personally, I feel like I should be here, but growing up I don’t think I ever thought I could be,” Doughty said. “I didn’t even think about it. I was just trying to get into college and play there. I don’t even think it was until my senior year that I even thought I had a shot. … I am a realistic person, maybe even too realistic.”
