Dominique Ramone Dorsey (born May 7, 1983) is a former professional gridiron football running back and kick returner. He most recently played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. He was originally signed by the Roughriders as an undrafted free agent in 2005. He played college football at Nevada-Las Vegas.
Dorsey signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2005 and played as a backup to Corey Holmes and Kenton Keith. After Holmes was traded in the following offseason, he had a bigger role in special teams in 2006, and was named the CFL's Special Teams Player of the Week three times throughout the season.
Winnipeg Blue BombersEdit
Along with defensive end Dwan Epps, Dorsey was traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for offensive tackle Eric Wilson on May 30, 2007. Dorsey appeared in two preseason games for the Blue Bombers before being waived on June 24.
On August 2, 2007, in his first ever game with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, Dorsey tied a league record, set by then teammate Bashir Levingston earlier in the year, for the longest missed field goal return with a 129-yard touchdown return against the Montreal Alouettes.
In 2008, Dorsey was named a CFL All-Star on special teams and awarded the John Agro Special Teams Award as the league's most outstanding special teams player. Dorsey finished the year with a league high 2,892 all-purpose yards despite missing five games due to injury.
Return to ArgonautsEdit
Return to RoughridersEdit
On February 17, 2010, Dorsey re-signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as a free agent. He played in the first ten games of the season before being placed on the nine-game injured list for the remainder of the season. He was released during the following off-season.
