Is Dana Dokmanovich a mother?
Dok is Dana and Franco’s son; he was born there and grew up there. Dok practices law and is also a businessman. His Facebook page states that he attended Princeton University to study political economy and then the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
He also attended the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. He challenged Pittsburgh’s incumbent mayor, Luke Ravenstahl, in the city’s 2009 mayoral election. Dok was recently interviewed by Pittsburgh Magazine, which was published in September 2010.
The article disclosed that Dana was against her son playing football professionally. Dok Harris, who still resides in the North Side, chose for the off-the-field spotlight because his mother, Dana Dokmanovich, “wasn’t going to allow her only child enter the tackling world of shoulder pads and cleats,” regardless of whether or not his alma mater, Sewickley Academy, had a football team.
