Dodds is the first former Burn player to sign a contract at the next level.The 26-year-old Dodds, who was invited to a two-day tryout with the Blaze, came away from his audition with a contract. Burn Head Coach Lee Leslie, who coached the Blaze before coming to Boise, said, ?I?m extremely proud of Corey and happy for the Blaze. Corey has a motor that never stops and that will help him at the next level.?Dodds, who lives in Salt Lake City during the off-season, is no stranger to the Utah fan base.
