Summit Daily/Sean StarKylor Dosset

With the level of competition in high school sports greater than ever, student athletes are forced to specialize in only one or two varsity sports. Summit High School senior Kylor Dossett is an exception. Dossett is a rare three-sport athlete who plays soccer, basketball and baseball.Not only does Dossett participate in three varsity sports, but he plays them at a very high level. In just his junior year, Dossett received 2nd team all-confernce honors in each sport. Most athletes would be thrilled with the idea of receiving just one mention.Dossett started the school year on the soccer field where he led the Tigers to one of their best seasons in history. The super-athlete was outstanding for Summit posting seven shutouts, ranking him fifth in the entire state.After the soccer team ended its run in the playoffs, Dossett had only three days to rest for the upcoming basketball season. And once the basketball season comes to end, Dossett will immediately transition to baseball with no days off.

Dossett’s busy schedule has forced him to manage his time well. “It’s though man, you got to keep up with school, sports, and homework.” Dossett said, “You have to plan your time very wisely.” Now that soccer is over, Dossett has turned his focus to the hardwood. He plays point-guard for Summit and is definitely one of the most spectacular players on the court. The local senior can do everything for the Tigers and hopes to lead his team far into the playoffs this winter.Although most of his time is occupied, playing three sports does have its benefits. Dossett said that it, “keeps you in shape,” to play three sports. With a large amount of conditioning during practices, Dossett is glad that he was spending his off-season, well, in-season.So many practices and games over the years would make one think that he is ready to focus his attention towards at least two sports after high school. Think again. The eighteen year-old plans on playing soccer, basketball and baseball in college at whichever school he can.

Which is your favorite sport?”It depends on what time of the year you ask me. Which ever sport I’m currently playing is usually my favorite.”Do you feel that coaches from different sports compete over you?”I don’t think they necessarily compete over me. I think they just want total commitment from you.”

What is the best thing about playing high school sports?”The best things would have to be the team camaraderie and the home games. I love to play in front of our fans, especially when they have great school spirit. I also enjoy the rivalries that have developed between us and some other schools.”
