Dobbs, an only child from Georgia, started visiting A.J. and connecting with the family and the two quickly became very close.
“Going to their house was like a home away from home,” Dobbs told the NFL. “My mom, she’s been in a wheelchair since I was five. Everything in my mind is slated to how can I help my mom? How can I make things easier? Is everything accessible? So with A.J., that was just instinct. I just wanted to be a part of his life.”
Josh and A.J.’s story was documented by the NFL. You can watch the full story below.
Josh’s faith in Christ is strong and says that Jesus is number one in his life.
“My personal relationship with Jesus Christ means everything to me,” Dobbs told The Tennessean in 2015. “Everything that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to God and my parents. I try to live my life in a way that it glorifies God in everything I do.”
Dobbs says that prayer plays a key role in his walk with Christ.
“I was raised in a Christian home, where my parents grounded me in principles that help me deal with the demands of life. I believe in the power of prayer. Whether a situation is good or bad, I am guided by my faith. I am a member of First Redeemer Church back home. I try to attend church regularly here in the Knoxville and really enjoy visiting several of the local churches.”
