For many spring football players, the UFL is their last shot to show that they belong in the world of professional football. Brahmas quarterback Quentin Dormady is one of those players who has come to the UFL to show that he can be better than many expect him to be. Even until recently, with the Brahmas, Dormady had been overlooked and considered a player who was not quite good enough to lead an offense.

Today, Dormady finds him staring at yet another opportunity for redemption. When the Brahmas selected Dormady with the first pick in the UFL Dispersal Draft, many believed that Dormady would be the starting quarterback for the Brahmas. Unfortunately for Dormady in training camp, he was beaten out for the right to start the season as the Brahmas starting quarterback by former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Chase Garbers. Still, the Quentin Dormady story does not end there. This week, after the Brahmas had lost the Saint Louis Battlehawks, the Brahmas announced that Chase Garbers is out for the season due to a wrist injury, which opens the door for Dormady to prove himself again.

A Long Road to Professional Football

Quentin Dormady’s long road to redemption started when he committed to play for the University of Tennessee. Dormady played for the Volunteers from 2015 until 2017, and while he had opportunities to be the starting quarterback for the Vols, he found himself looking for other opportunities. After playing in 16 games in three years in Knoxville, Dormady decided to transfer to the University of Houston.

In 2018, Dormady had limited opportunities to prove he could be a starting quarterback for the Houston Cougars, including five passes thrown in two games. Dormady continued looking for opportunities when he transferred to Central Michigan to play for the Chippewas in 2019. While at Central Michigan, Dormady played in 10 games and had the chance to demonstrate his abilities as a quarterback.

Starting His Pro Football Quest

After leaving Central Michigan, Dormady was on the practice squad for the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL from 2021 to 2022. Dormady’s next opportunity was with the Orlando Guardians during the 2023 XFL season. While Dormady did have the chance to play in seven games with the Guardians, he also found himself at the center of a controversy.

Controversial Accusations

While waiting for his opportunity to lead the Guardians offense behind struggling starting quarterback Paxton Lynch, Dormady was involved in a scandal. During a game week in which the Guardians were going to face the Brahmas, Dormady had been made inactive for the game. He then sent a series of messages to his acquaintance, Reid Sinnett, who, at the time, was a quarterback for the Brahmas. Those messages drew the suspicion that Dormady had been leaking information about his team and the game plan they would use against the Brahmas. Ultimately, the Guardians cleared Dormady’s name, and he had the chance to start in five games so that the Guardians could finish the XFL season.

A New Opportunity with the Brahmas

When Dormady was selected the Brahmas during the dispersal draft, it represented a fresh start for Dormady. Up to this point, Dormady has been waiting patiently for his opportunity to show that he has what it takes to lead offensive coordinator AJ Smith’s pass-heavy offense. With Garbers injury, this is an opportunity for Dormady to step into the starting quarterback role for the Brahmas and show that he has what it takes to lead the Brahmas to the top of the XFL Conference.
