Char-ron Dorsey, a former offensive lineman who played in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys, has reportedly tragically passed away at the young age of 46. After his playing career, Dorsey became a football coach.

The former Cowboy reportedly passed away due to complications from a stroke that he had suffered. Dorsey played college football at Florida State University, where he was part of a national championship Seminole team in 1999. That team was coached by Bobby Bowden.

In 2000, Dorsey achieved ACC All-Pro honors, paving his entrance into the NFL with a stellar performance over the year. He was selected in the 7th round of the NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. in 2001.

When released by the Cowboys, Dorsey weighed an unbelievable 388 pounds, a lot of weight even for his 6’6 frame. Dorsey had spoken about struggling with his weight during his playing career.

“Teams want offensive lineman to be pretty big. Maybe I got too big. I battle this every year. I get question after question every year about it. It gets to the point where you get tired of hearing about it,” the lineman told the Houston Chronicle.

He started just two games for Dallas before being released by the team, and eventually picked up by the Houston Texans. Dorsey’s friend Michael Holloway told the Florida Times Union about the former Cowboy’s passing, saying,

“He’s had an impact on so many kids that have had the opportunity to make it to the next level.”

Dorsey had reportedly stepped away from coaching football last year. Char-ron Dorsey leaves behind a son, C.J. Dorsey, who is now a defensive end at Ferris State University of Michigan. It is truly tragic to lose this man at such a young age.
