Student-Athlete Spotlight - Asia Doss, Women's Basketball

Dec. 7, 2015

UPS

Last year as freshman at The Ohio State University, Detroit, Mich., native Asia Doss immediately took advantage of every opportunity she could get her hands on. On the court, she stepped in right away and started all 35 games, averaging five points and three assists per game. In the classroom, she choose to enter the mechanical engineering world and that decision is already paying dividends. She has participated in a number of engineers job fairs and as a sophomore, Doss already has a plan in place for her future.
