Personal
  • Before Dozier's senior season (2015) at Arlington Heights (Texas) High School, he committed to the University of Virginia.  He played football (quarterback/punter), as well as baseball (outfielder/pitcher).

  • Doak is tall, thin and athletic.
  • He's a fan of Derek Jeter, "the classiest player of all time," according to Doak.

  • Dozier does a lot of weight lifting/training accompanied by a speed and agility workout 3 or 4 times a week and hitting/throwing on the other days.

  • Likes the saying: "Live life like a 3-1 count."
  • Ping pong is Doak's 2nd-favorite sport.
  • Favorite movie: Frozen.

  • Best Present he's ever received: Beats by Dre speakers.
  • Music: Anything by Calvin Harris.  Meal: Steak and potatoes.  Superstitions: I always put my left shoe/cleat on first.

  • Doak's parents are David and Donna Dozier and they named their son after football legend Doak Walker.  Dozier has one younger sister, Charlotte.

  • In high school, Dozier graduated Magna Cum Laude and finished seventh out of 337 students in his graduating class. Doak was a member of National Honor Society; also was a Yellow Jacket Scholar and Director of Athletics Scholar.
Batting

  • Dozier is a lefthanded toolsy hitter. Using a spread stance, he is an upper half rotational hitter who is learning to incorporate his lower half. So expect lots more power. (Spring, 2015)
  • Doak's very fast hands equal fine bat speed. He handles the barrel well.
  • Dozier impresses the way he makes adjustments to pitches.

  • Dozier shows some ability to hit for average and power. He has a quick left-handed swing and manages the strike zone well for a teenager. His 6-foot-3 frame gives him the leverage and projectable strength to become a home run threat once he matures physically. (Spring 2015)
Fielding
  • Doak's excellent speed equals excellent range in center field.
  • Dozier has a strong arm (a 60) but is improving both the accuracy of his throws but also working on the on-line plane.
Running

  • Dozier's best pure tool is his plus speed, which he uses well in center field.  He runs the 60 in 6.57 seconds.
