There was a player named Dobbin who was the captain of Carlton College in 1896. A relation?

Dobbin seems to have played most of this year's games. He was named in most of the team squads and many of the starting twenties that have been found. He was named mostly as a defender with a couple of games on the forward line.

Possible candidates.
Without the first name, it is guess work.
It seems the Carlton College player may be the best bet.

Would this fit, born 1880 aged 15 in 1895?
