Super Bowl champion cornerback and Purple Knight class of 2012 Lorenzo Doss will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before St. Augustine’s baseball game against McDonogh 35 High School on Wednesday evening at Wesley Barrow Stadium in New Orleans.
Doss, a former three-sport star at St. Aug and cornerback at Tulane University, is a member of the Denver Broncos who defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7.
At St. Aug Doss was a letterman in football, baseball and track. A teammate of Leonard Fournette ’14 and Trai Turner ’11, Doss helped lead the Purple Knights to a combined 26-18 record with a pair of state playoff appearances, including a district title as a senior. As a junior, he was named first-team All-District 10-5A and second-team All-metro after catching 23 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns. He was named honorable-mention 4A All-state and first-team All-District 10-4A as a senior after catching 15 passes for 330 yards (22.0 avg.) while running four times for 35 yards (4.8 avg.).
While in high school Doss also lettered twice in track and field and was selected to represent Orleans Parish in the 2011 Lake Pontchartrain All-Star Classic. Off the field, he was an honor roll student.
