k.dioubatePrep Charter’s 6-foot-4, 277-pound, four-star recruit committed to Penn State back in August. Karamo Dioubate has started since his freshman year and last year had 23 sacks and 75 pancake blocks.

“For his size no one has a first step like him,” said head football coach David Hand. “He explodes to the ball using his strength and speed.”

He was named first team Coaches All-Public and Daily News, All-City.

In 2015 on defense he had 15 sacks, 59 total tackles and 25 tackles for loss. On offense he had 62 pancakes.
Q&A with Head Football Coach David Hand

Q. What stood out about his season?

A. He started off the season a little slow due to a injury. Right before the season he had a knee injury and turf toe. By week four he started to be a dominant player on both sides of the ball.

He was a two-way player and never came off the field.
Q. What positions did he play for you this year?

A. On offense he played left tackle and on defense he played defensive end 90% of the time. But we did line him up at defensive tackle because of match ups.
Q. How did teams plan their offense against him?

A. Teams always double teamed him each week. They would see where he lined up and run the ball the opposite way.
