Cason Dash is a running back and linebacker for the Plant City Dolphins.
The Plant City Dolphins recently wrapped up their spring season in the Florida Youth Spring Football League and the Pee Wee team finished with a 7-2 record, making it all the way to the league championship game. One of the biggest contributors to the season was Cason Dash, who scored more than 20 touchdowns at running back and started for the team at linebacker all spring. Dash was also one of three Dolphins to make the league’s Pro Bowl cut and joined Elijah Frazier and Vance Parrish on the Pee Wee all-star team for the Northwest region.
