Court Dawkins

Court Dawkins

President/Flag Football Commissioner

Columbus Sports and Social has been one of the biggest adult recreation pickup groups since 2012. In 2020 Court decided to take CSS to the next level! In the midst of a pandemic, Court gathered a group of likeminded individuals to provide Columbus OH with the adult recreation sports league experience it deserved. Court moved from NYC in 2006 to attend The Ohio State University-Newark; there he played Basketball and intramural Lacrosse. Today you can catch him on the field catching passes or pitching kickballs.
