Dusty graduated Norfolk Catholic in 2000 and played Wingback and Linebacker during his 4 years on the football team. Dusty started every game in his four years of high school for Norfolk Catholic. Including 5 against Pierce, in which he was 5 – 0. In the regular season game in 1998, his Junior year, Dusty caught the winning touchdown pass in the 4th quarter as NC defeated Pierce 28 – 21. In his Senior year, the NC Pierce game was again a classic.
