Dolabella has enjoyed tremendous success in the classroom. He has already earned his undergraduate degree while maintaining a 3.80 GPA. In 2020-21, Dolabella was named the C-USA Men’s Scholar Athlete of the Year.

He has received the C-USA Academic Medal four times and is a four-time member of the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Dolabella, a member of the 2019 C-USA All-Academic Team, is also a two-time United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-Region selection.

He is currently working towards his MBA.


Since arriving in Huntington in 2017, Dolabella has been a leader both on and off the field. He is a three-time team captain and is always willing to talk to the media when needed. Dolabella is very polite, always asking media members how they are and thanking them after interviews.

Returning to Huntington after winning the National Championship in May, Dolabella was the first one to get off of the bus holding the trophy and carrying it into the stadium. He was even asked to come up and speak during the ceremony by the Mayor of Huntington.

Once told by coaches recruiting him that the wasn’t good enough to play DI, Dolabella has used that as motivation ever since.


Hailing from Brazil, Dolabella loves to participate in the community in Huntington. He enjoys helping teach soccer to young kids in the area, showing them that they can one day play at the collegiate level. Dolabella reminds them about his own journey, from being told he wasn’t good enough to being a National Champion.


Dolabella has compiled 73 starts and played in 78 matches so far. His time in Huntington has coincided with the rise of the program, as he helped take the Herd to the C-USA Tournament semi-final in both his freshman and sophomore years. Last season, Dolabella was captain for the Marshall squad that won its second straight C-USA Championship and first ever National Championship.

In 2019, Dolabella helped lead Marshall to the 2019 C-USA regular season and tournament titles, as well as their first ever trip to the NCAA Tournament. He was named the Offensive MVP after scoring the game-winning goal against Charlotte in the 2019 conference title match.

So far this season, he is third on the team in scoring with two goals, three assists, and seven points.

For his career, the two-time All-C-USA selection has recorded 13 assists, 15 goals, and 43 total points.
